Home Matters Supporting People – providing innovative support to people with dementia
Local business, Home Matters Supporting People Limited, last week launched its new Community Interest Company, which will provide individualised support to people with Dementia and their loved ones. Home Matters have, during the last 12 months, been developing the service and have been actively supporting individuals in the local community as part of the Dudley Supporting People Dementia Project.
Helping them to launch their new service are a couple of ladies who enjoyed a recent workshop to plant and grow sunflowers. Sunflowers have been chosen by Home Matters as they are symbolic of the impact they aim to make; to add a little sunshine and to help the family to gain the strength to stand tall – just like the long, tall stem of the flower!
Director Gabby Gould said: ‘Our service recognises that Dementia can be very isolating and that traditional domiciliary care services do not always have the resources to provide an individualised package of support to meet the needs of both the person who has Dementia and their Carer. Our team of staff and volunteers will offer a holistic range of services to include: memory lane workshops, animal assisted therapy, baking & sharing, cognitive stimulation therapy, individual sessions, trips out and much more. We are so privileged to share the families Dementia journey, and hope that with our support we can really make a difference. As a Community Interest Company, we plan to reinvest any profits we make to support individuals with Dementia in our local community. But we cannot do this without members of the local community supporting us!’
If you are interested in volunteering a few hours of your time, Home Matters have lots of opportunities to use your skills. Or, if you are a local business who want to embrace Corporate Social Responsibility, and want to make a difference on your doorstep come and join them as a Dementia Ambassador.
