Company Charity - Alzheimer's Society
We are delighted to support the Alzheimer’s Society as our corporate charity partner for 2020.
Every 3 minutes, someone in the UK develops dementia – and the number of people living with dementia is set to rise to over two million by 2051. Dementia is a progressive illness, affecting people’s memories, independence and the ability to communicate – currently there is no cure.
“ERS Medical transport hundreds of thousands of patients each year, unfortunately due to the nature of our service, many have some form of dementia. By partnering with Alzheimer’s Society, we aim to do everything we can to raise funds, raise awareness and improve the experience of dementia patients travelling on our ambulances. I am looking forward to supporting such a great cause over the next few years” Andrew Pooley – Managing Director ERS Medical
That’s why we’re supporting the Alzheimer Society.
Education and Awareness
To help support people living with dementia, ERS Medical staff are encouraged to become Dementia Friends to learn more about dementia and the small ways they can help.
Dementia Friendly Business
ERS Medical will be working to improve services and premises to ensure it is accessible for those living with dementia.
