Business Supporters become dementia friends

One of local charity Age UK Cheshire East’s Business Supporters this week became dementia friends after an awareness session at the charity’s offices in Macclesfield. North West Mediation Solutions, a local business based in Kettleshulme, joined the charity’s Business Supporters Scheme last October after being impressed by the valuable support the Charity provides for older people. The company, which resolves disputes about issues such as property, wills, power of attorney and care home issues, helps parties reach a settlement. The local charity, which is in its 30th year, is encouraging any local business who may wish to learn more about dementia, to get in touch to arrange similar sessions. The session today follows fresh on the heels of a similar session held with another of the Charity’s supporters, Thorneycroft Solicitors, at their offices last week.
