Healthcare Management Solutions Regional Manager Raises £630 For Dementia UK

Healthcare Management Solutions regional manager, Sam Armstrong, has taken on a 100-mile cycle in a bid to raise money for Dementia UK.

Dementia UK is a charity that is closely aligned with our organisation, with many of the care homes we manage specialising in supporting those living with dementia.

To make the challenge more interesting, Sam planned her route so she started at Riverside House, Morpeth, and stopped by Appleby Care Home, North Shields, for some refreshments before heading back home.

Both Riverside House and Appleby Care Home are operated by Healthcare Management Solutions, so it was a nice touch that Sam was supported by our residents as part of her journey.

Sam managed to raise a fantastic £630 for Dementia UK, and we are sure the money will help the charity to continue doing vital research into the condition.

Supporting Those Living With Dementia

Dementia UK provides specialist support for families. It gives compassionate one-to-one guidance and practical solutions that people may need.

Research conducted by the Social Care Institute of Excellence indicates that more than, 920,000 people in the UK are living with dementia. Though there are many different causes and types of dementia, there is currently no cure.

Commenting on her challenge, Sam said: “As I work for Healthcare Management Solutions, a care home operator, I knew that Dementia UK would be a great cause for me to raise money for.

“I am a keen cyclist, but the challenge was very tiring, and I was definitely glad to see the lovely Appleby family towards the end of my ride!

“Organisations such as Dementia UK are so important. The research they do for people living with the disease is life-changing. I hope the money I have raised will help them to continue to do fantastic work for our elderly community.”
