Below is some pledges we have received via email and our blog.
Thank you Team Dementia Carer Voices 🙂
My pledge would be to get to know more about dementia, for my family & friends to see your website & presentation to raise awareness of Dementia plus the work you are doing.
My pledge is to help where I can with my local community and to remember that the patient is everything in my role.
As a nurse for 32 years I now pledge to always listen to the voice that tells me to put a hand on that shoulder and never listen to the voice that says I`m too busy, I`ve done enough etc I will also get the place I work in to get a pledge tree.
I pledge to become more involved with the Alzheimer`s Society, supporting people with dementia.
To become more aware of family/friends/neighbours needs or future needs around dementia.
