Massive thank you to our great friend and supporter of our project David Roxburgh, Training Manager, Heather Clarke, Service Manager and all the team at Loretto Care in Fullerton for inviting Tommy to tour the most wonderful care home, with a difference. The facility has individual studio flats where they support the recovery of 22 people with alcohol related brain damage. A big thanks to Ann Marie for the tour, we were truly inspired by the surroundings and people that we met on the day.
Tommy was joined by Sarah Forster, Health and Social Care Academy Manager at the ALLIANCE, who gave an overview of the academy and wider ALLIANCE work.
Look out for a podcast from one of the previous residents of Loretto Care.
Read our new Dementia Carer Voices publication on the analysis of 6,000 pledges.
We were truly inspired and are very excited to be looking at possibilities to work together in the future with David, Heather and the team, hopefully launching a Loretto Care Home Pledge Tree, turning good intentions into actions .
A few staff members gave Tommy some personal pledges on the day that you can see bellow.
