Dementia Appeal

When you're living with dementia the world can feel very different.

Right now, one in four patients across Sheffield hospitals are living with dementia. They can often find hospital stressful and confusing.

That's why we need your help. By helping to create a hospital environment that meets the unique needs of people with dementia, you'll make their experience of hospital so much better - and give them the best chance of going home feeling fit and healthy.

Will you join us, and help make your local hospitals better for people with dementia today?

There are so many ways that you can help to make hospital life better for patients with dementia.

You can take part in one of our upcoming fundraising events, gather your friends and family to organise your own activity or get your work place involved.

Whatever you choose to do and however you choose to do it, the money you raise will make a lasting difference to the lives of patients with dementia.

The money you raise will help to…

  • Bring happiness to hospital wards by providing social activities such as visits from a therapy dog and music sessions.
  • Fund the redevelopment of hospital spaces around the specific needs of patients with dementia allowing them to feel as independent and confident as possible.
  • Enable hospital staff to provide the best possible care by providing specialist dementia training in addition to what is already provided as part of their role.
