Dementia UK are hosting their event ‘Time for a Cuppa’ which will run from 1st - 8th May 2021. The first ‘Time for a Cuppa’ event was held in 2009 and was named a ‘tea party to remember’ and each year Dementia UK host the event in the hope to beat their fundraising target.

As we are all aware, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected people in a variety of different ways but specifically, has had a huge impact on families facing dementia. There are around 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia and it is reported that since the beginning of lockdown, people living with dementia have experienced an increase in memory loss and heightened agitation/restlessness.

What is dementia?

  • Dementia is not a normal part of the ageing process. It occurs when the brain is affected by a disease. Dementia affects individuals differently, such as problems with memory, thinking, concentration, language, visuospatial skills and orientation. Dementia can also impact a person’s mood, emotions and their behaviour.
  • Dementia is progressive. This means that a person’s symptoms will get worse over time. However, many people still live many happy, fulfilling years for many years after their initial diagnosis of dementia.
  • Most people develop dementia over the age of 65 but dementia can also affect younger people, with more than 42,000 people in the UK under 65 with dementia.

Time for a Cuppa raises well needed money for Admiral Nurses to allow them to continue supporting families emotionally and practically for those caring for people with dementia. At Ramsdens, we love to get together and have a bake sale and take time out for a cuppa to support this cause and this year will be no different (it will just be virtual instead!).

You can visit their website and download a fundraising pack with plenty of ideas or simply just arrange a date and time with your team to get involved, raise awareness and fundraise for Dementia UK!
