Since 2015 Touchstone has been working hard to be a Dementia Friendly organisation.
Through the leadership of the Dementia Champions group awareness around Dementia including some practical actions as enabled Touchstone to become more of a dementia friendly organisation. One of the key aims of the Dementia Champions is to ensure there is a consistent approach across all our sites and services. For example a Dementia Friendly Environmental Audit has recently been carried out in Touchstone sites and actions such as improving lighting and signage in reception areas have taken place.
We can never be complacent as there is still significant scope to continually improve. This will only be possible if all Touchstone staff are engaged in this important agenda through their Dementia Champion.
