#SFD15 supports SHC Dementia Appeal

The Sheffield Fans Derby is delighted to confirm the charity appeal that #SFD15 will be supporting is the Dementia Appeal.

It is estimated that 850,000 people are living with dementia in the UK and one in six people over the age of 80. With an aging population, the demand on our hospitals to provide a dementia friendly environment and specialised care is only going to increase. We are looking to fund changes to the patient environment and deliver projects that support the everyday work of our hospitals to make sure they quickly deliver benefits for patients with dementia, their carers, families and friends. This will include environmental improvements to help patients negotiate their way around the wards more easily and music sessions which may help trigger memories, amongst other things.

We will be providing further details about the appealĀ  in due course.
