A big thank you to all at Dementia Friendly for all their help and advice. On our first visit the atmosphere was easily picked up very friendly and welcoming instantly feeling at ease. All information given to us was very helpful and explained in easy understandable way. After our first visit we seemed to have become regular visitors and we may be part of the fittings.
A big thank you to all and you have made our problems a bit easier to understand and manage.

I work at the Post Office and we had a customer who had lost her card. She was getting very distressed and we didn’t know how to handle the situation. Then two ladies from the Dementia Friendly in Keighley came to the Post Office. They spoke with the elderly lady, calmed her down, managed to get her a new pension card to enable her to collect her pension money. They then took her for a cup of tea. How nice was that!!

Thank you regards, Keighley Post Office Girls

Thank you so much for all of your help and support. Your advice has helped me and my family to steer through the minefield of what help and support might be available, but also hints and tips of how to persuade my mother to accept the help.
Thank you so much!!

After a tough night, regarding our father-in-law. We knew we would receive sound advice on how to cope with the Dementia going forward. This experience that Helen has is invaluable in a learning ear, and what positive action to take from this point onwards. The face to face approach has been invaluable. Thank you for this so much!
