ITV West Country feature our dementia story

Shirley features on ITV West Country TV news

We were proud as punch to see Shirley and Brenda on ITV West Country News on Friday 1 March

Take a watch of the ITV news video here:

Two inspiring ladies shared with presenter Ellie Barker the benefits of walking, for themselves and for residents we care for in Gloucestershire – especially those living with dementia.

Shirley Turner who works as PA at Faithfull House care home was inspired to take part in Dementia UK’s challenge for February to walk 1k a day, but she did it with a difference – invited residents to do it too.

Shirley and the residents’ daily steps during February has championed the amazing dementia care our staff provide across our six care homes and day hub in Gloucestershire.

Thanks to Shirley, all residents who took part and the staff who supported her in this terrific challenge.
