Maria Mallaband Care Group Supports Dementia UK

Maria Mallaband Care Group (MMCG) is supporting the charity Dementia UK with company-wide fundraising.

The care home group, which has more than 80 homes across the UK, will see a host of community events and group-wide efforts raising awareness as well as vital funds to help this specialist dementia nursing charity with its vital work.

Sally Harrison-Exton, Director of Lifestyle and Marketing at MMCG, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting this fantastic charity. Teams across the group are already brainstorming ideas for community events, and in some cases, already raising money in aid of Dementia UK - we are all brimming with ideas for how we can fundraise and support this cause.

Dementia UK works to support families following a dementia diagnosis with specialist nurses, known as Admiral Nurses, who provide free, expert advice, support and understanding to help families care for their loved one.

Laura Steward, Group Head of Dementia Development at MMCG, said: “At MMCG we share Dementia UK’s vision for specialist dementia support, and we are passionate about providing that gold-standard specialist care for all those living with dementia in our homes, working closely with and supporting their families too.

“This will further help us to embed our Dementia Pledge built on the core idea of ‘Always you’. All our colleagues are committed to this promise to see the person for who they are and supporting those living with dementia to continue to lead a respected, fulfilling life.”

Over the past two years MMCG has rolled out a series of improvements driving towards even better care, including developing an ever-expanding team of specialist Dementia Ambassadors and rolling out five dementia education modules.

Lorna Hawkins, Corporate Partnership Manager at Dementia UK, said: “We are excited to be supported by MMCG – they have already brought some great ideas to the table for fundraising over the next few months, and we look forward to working closely with them to raise vital funds for families affected by dementia.”
