Dementia Awareness Week aims to educate people about dementia and those living with the condition so they feel valued, confident and can retain as much of their independence as possible

OSJCT is delighted to once again be supporting Dementia Awareness Week – an initiative the Trust believes very strongly in.  As part of the Dementia Awareness week activities, all homes are organising a variety of events for residents, including healthy walks, sensory awareness days and "All About Me" life-story reminiscence sessions.

OSJCT employs its own St. John Admiral Nurses who specialise in dementia. The homes offering dementia care are led by managers with a special interest and expertise in this area, and all OSJCT staff are given specialist dementia-specific training, accredited by the Alzheimer’s Society.
