Inspired by a small team we wish to change the face of ‘care’ for individuals suffering with dementia and in particular, during the end stages of the disease process when caring for someone can be both challenging and distressing.
It could be you. It could be your loved ones. No matter who you speak with these days, they always seem to know of someone who is suffering with this terrible disease.
Dementia affects people indiscriminately. It is not a respecter of age, intelligence or personal health. There is at present no cure. Despite the breath of research there is no anticipated cure in the near future.
The government’s drive is to increase the number of people receiving an early diagnosis. But what happens then?
There is no cure. The only option is good care.
A vast majority of the care for these people is undertaken and provided by family members. However as the disease progresses, it becomes harder for families to care for their loved ones. Their desperate attempts to avoid institutional care means they are often at crisis point before they seek help.
At iMind our initiative is twofold – It is a campaign to raise awareness about dementia care but also to provide a solution in the form of developing an innovative care setting.
We wish to raise the profile of ‘good care’ and offer everyone a chance to share in the dementia care journey by purchasing an ‘iMin’ which will raise funds for a brand new innovative care environment here in the UK. An environment which has been proven to work in other countries but will be the first of its kind in the UK. The first project will be here in the South West and thereafter the model will be replicated in other parts of the country.
All funds raised through our iMins will be utilised to make the project a reality. We need to raise around £20 million pounds.
Our passion and commitment will bring dementia sufferers and their families hope and relief. They will be comforted to know if the time comes to move into a residential care setting there is an assurance of an amazing care environment which allows them to carry on living to their full potential until the end of their days.
Our dream is enormous but our passion is greater. Our vision is to create a sustainable enterprise that will help but also inspire others to change. We need your help to make this possible. Every iMin denotes your support and commitment which will make a difference.
Together we can all make a difference about 'dementia care'. Buy an iMin today and follow us to make this dream a reality.
