Delivering quality care for over 30 years

Alzheimer’s Disease

Friday 7 December is Support #Elfday

Agincare is proud to be unleashing our inner elf by dressing up – as much as we possibly can across all of our company. From home care offices, to care homes and staff in our individual head office teams, we’re all taking part and prizes for the best dressed team are on offer!

What is Elf Day?

Elf Day is the festive fundraiser created by the Alzheimer’s Society to help get you in the Christmas spirit whilst raising money to help beat dementia.

Delays in transfer of care

Recent data published by NHS England shows a 24% decrease in delayed transfer of care when comparing June 2017 to June 2018. Though the trend shows very positive signs there were still over 134,000 delayed days of care in June 2018. The main reason for NHS delays was because patients were awaiting further non acute NHS care. For social care delays, patients were often waiting for care packages to be set up in their own homes.

A beautiful poem from the wife of a Resident at Gainsborough Care Home

You've been the love of my life for 50 plus years 
We've had laughter, joy and just a few tears
We have travelled a lot
Been here and there
And on the whole life was quite fair
Until the day you had your first stroke
I was scared and worried — it was no joke
Then Mr. Alzheimers entered our life
You didn't even know that I was your wife
You got progressively worse, your mind went blank
You couldn't remember things and to be frank
