Become a dementia friendly business

Businesses and Alzheimer’s

A lot of businesses have employees whose family-member has Alzheimer’s. Though the employee might have that “perfect job”, their work may suffer in their private life if caring for someone living with Dementia.

Therefore, if businesses become more “dementia-friendly” and consider how Dementia affects everyone, Ilkley will become a more accepting town for people living with dementia. Businesses that have made allowances for Alzheimer’s should be - and are - applauded, but we ask them to take into account anyone who lives with someone living with any dementia-related conditions: can you do more, or be more accommodating?
