Tunstall Healthcare is marking World Alzheimer’s Month - September 2022 - with a range of fundraising and partnership initiatives.
These include giving £20,000 to Alzheimer’s Disease International to help raise education and awareness of dementia, influence policy making, and support ground-breaking research into the disease.
Tunstall is also supporting Dementia UK, a charity that provides Admiral Nurses for families affected by dementia. The nurses offer one-to-one support, expert guidance, and practical solutions. Tunstall has coordinated a range of fundraising initiatives and has so far raised and donated over £3,700 to the charity. The money raised will go towards providing more nurses to families in their communities, in hospitals and in hospices, and help to support the Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline.
Emil Peters, Tunstall CEO, said: “I’m delighted that we’re forming these crucial partnerships and educating our colleagues about dementia and the impact that it can have on us as individuals, families, and community members. With people living with dementia globally set to rise to 139 million by 2050, we’re looking forward to using our expertise to advance digital health and care solutions for vulnerable people from all walks of life. It’s extremely important that we as people have information for choice for how and where we want to live our lives, regardless of any physical or neurological health issues. By working with partners like Alzheimer’s Disease International, we can make a tangible difference for ourselves and our communities.”
