Angela toured the home and chatred with residents during her visit and was joined by Doncaster resident Trevor Jarvis who lives with dementia and is also an Alzheimer’s Society Ambassador.

Angela, who works tirelessly to support the work of Alzheimer’s Society and co-chairs the Dementia Friendly Communities Champions Group, which focuses on improving inclusion and quality of life for people living with dementia, said: “With an ever growing number of people living longer with dementia, it’s more important than ever that we all have a better understanding of the condition and ensure that our care homes and their staff are equipped and trained in how to care for people living with the condition.”
