The Radfield Home Care Richmond, Kingston and Hounslow team attended the Richmond RUNFEST this weekend and raised a whopping £160 for the Alzheimer’s Society through raffle ticket sales.

The Richmond RUNFEST is organised by RUNFEST LTD. Their aim is to organise a fun local event involving the whole family and the local community and to include everything that is great about the Borough of Richmond and share this beautiful place with the world.

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia and is described as a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language.

Shamsah Lalji, Owner and Director of the branch, explained,


“It is important that people living with dementia remain fit and healthy for as long as possible. Some factors that can impact this are mental wellbeing, exercise, eating well and staying mobile.

Dementia is not an older person’s disease. There are more than 42,000 people in the UK under the age of 65 living with dementia. We had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend at RUNFEST as we continually strive to raise as much awareness about the disease and the symptoms to look out for.”


 

Registered Care Manager, Magdalena Zieba highlighted the need for high-quality training and care to clients living with dementia.


“We train all our staff to have an in-depth understanding of dementia, how to make our clients feel valued, how to stimulate them and what activities to do with them to help them stay alert and motivated.”


 

The Radfield Home Care team would like to thank its sponsors (Kensington Court Hotel, ASRA Productions, Experience Days and Moose Maple Butter) for donating wonderful prizes.
