GAME OVER Dementia

GAME OVER Dementia

On 30th June 2021 Your Home Care employees lead by Josh our Recruitment Manager, will be hosting a 24hr gameathon which will be streamed live on the popular streaming platform Twitch for GAME OVER Dementia, an Alzheimer’s Society event. Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer. Over 850,000 people are living with dementia right now and 1 in 3 of us will be affected in our lifetime. In the UK someone develops dementia every 3 minutes, this means that for every two hours of gaming, 40 people will have developed dementia.

Your Home Care are proud to be able to help support the Alzheimer’s Society by helping raise awareness amongst a typically younger audience. Reportedly, 41% of Twitch viewers are aged between 16 and 24 with a further 32% in the 25 to 34 age group.

Your Home Care employees will be playing various games including Call of Duty War Zone, Fortnite and more in an effort to raise as much money as possible. You can donate via our JustGiving page in the run up to the event or on the day.

A special guest will also be playing at the event, Paralympian Ollie Hynd MBE. Ollie a 3-time Paralympic gold medallist in London and Rio along with an MBE for services to swimming is an avid gamer.

Client’s Daughter

We have been using your home care for a couple of months now for my mother and father-in-law and are so impressed with their service. Not only have they given us peace of mind knowing that our loved ones are being checked in on, but they also did some checks on my father-in-law which highlighted that his blood pressure was extremely low. They contacted us straight away which meant we were able to contact the GP regarding this and as a result, my father-in-law has had his medication reduced and his blood pressure is now normal. Without your home cares intervention this would have gone unnoticed possibly resulting in my father-in-law becoming unwell.

I can not recommend their services highly enough. They give us peace of mind knowing that someone has been in and checked on my mother and father-in-law and we know that they will contact us with any concerns they have.

Client’s Daugher-in-Law

We recently started using the support service by Your Home Care for my grandad and we only have great things to say about the team. The care, consideration and support the team have provided for my grandad have been second to none. The daily visits have really boosted his morale and he has found the staff so helpful and supportive. He has said he feels like they really care. I would recommend using Your Home Care to anyone, they are wonderful. Thank you so much for helping my grandad.
