East Hill House walk the walk to raise awareness for the Alzheimer’s Society

Residents and members of the team at East Hill House care home in Liss, not only ‘talk the talk’, but ‘walked the walk’ when they hosted and took part in a Memory Walk earlier this month to raise awareness of the Alzheimer’s Society.

The team were also joined by friends and some family members with their ages ranging from four weeks to 99 years old, so a real intergenerational effort!

Our chef provided us with a delicious picnic which we enjoyed during a break whilst taking in the beautiful scenery around us. We are very fortunate to live in such a scenic part of Hampshire.

Thankfully the weather was pleasant so it was a really enjoyable day for everyone involved and was yet another way that East Hill House works in and with the local community to raise awareness of what it like to live with dementia.

From holding events such as the Memory Walk, the team are passionate about spreading awareness to the wider community by joining up with the people of Liss to make it more dementia friendly. Staff run monthly training sessions, which aim to increase the community’s understanding of dementia, and help them make the small changes to support dementia sufferers they come into contact with. Trainees include all staff at East Hill, relatives of residents, and residents of Liss. Training has even been delivered to the whole staff team at a local supermarket.

East Hill House is also proud to be shortlisted for Best Dementia Care Home in the National Dementia Care Awards 2017. Read more here.

The Memory Walk is a sponsored walk for all ages and abilities to unite together to raise money to defeat dementia and this year, over 110,000 people walked united, against dementia. The Alzheimer’s Society aim is to raise over £9 million and here at East Hill House, we are proud to have helped towards this great cause, one step at a time. Find out more about Alzheimer’s Society and Memory Walk here.
