Penrose Care raises dementia awareness at the Hampstead Festival

Belsize Village, London – Penrose Care is pleased to announce that it distributed at least 65 living with dementia guides or £4.99 each free to the public at the 2016 Hampstead Summer Festival Big Fair held on Sunday, July 3, 2016.

As an ethical provider of home care, Penrose Care sees it as its civic duty to play its party in helping raise awareness of dementia in our community.

“The free distribution of ‘First Steps to living with Dementia’ by Dr Simon Atkins was an idea generated by our co-founder Dr Matthew Knight, as a means of assisting people to better manage dementia with respect to lifestyle knowledge and also to help make them aware that professional care providers like Penrose Care are there to support them to stay living at home as the disease progresses via the provision of dementia care in people’s own homes.”

Penrose Care also acknowledges the supportive comment by Finchley & Frognal Councillor of Camden Council Gio Spinella regarding the public service nature of the dementia guides distribution:

Camden Council Cllr Gio Spinella of Finchley and Frognal tweets out support for Penrose Care’s dementia awareness initiative.

“I found particularly positive the great number of festival attendees who told me they received a booklet from the 2015 festivals as well as some folks who came to get a booklet because they were praised by others who already read our free booklets from last you,” said Mr Stephenson-Padron. “Penrose Care intends to continue the program in the following years.”
