This week is Dementia Action Week, an important event which raises awareness of dementia. According to the Alzheimer’s Society, there are over 850,000 people with dementia in the UK, with this figure set to rise to over one million by 2025. Therefore, it is vital that people come together to take action to help improve the lives of those living with the disease.
Here at The Key Safe Company, we work closely with the elderly and understand the impact dementia can have. We are proud to have a number of Dementia Friends amongst our team, and we ensure that we always offer a friendly and professional approach to support those living with the disease, as well as their families.
Our range of products has been designed to make independent living more secure, providing comfort and reassurance to those who need it most. Our leading Supra C500 KeySafe allows caregivers, relatives and health care professionals to easily and securely access a property, which is particularly vital for those who may struggle to answer the door themselves.
Although receiving a dementia diagnosis can be daunting and overwhelming, there are many things that can be done to help those living with the disease to continue enjoying life and stay as independent as possible. Age UK recommend following a routine each day, as well as interacting with others and keeping in touch with family and friends. Listening to music can also benefit people with dementia, helping to reduce anxiety and stimulate the mind.
At The Key Safe Company, we hope that our friendly approach and range of products can help support individuals and their families when dealing with dementia.
