ILFRACOMBE BUSINESSES ALL SET FOR DEMENTIA FRIENDLY INITIATIVE “MYSTERY SHOPPER”

One Ilfracombe is reminding businesses in Ilfracombe that a volunteer mystery shopper will be visiting in the next couple of weeks and one business will be declared the most dementia friendly premise.

 

They will then be invited to an event where they will be presented with an award in recognition of their efforts in making the lives better of those living with dementia in Ilfracombe.

 

Michelle Lomas, One Ilfracombe Project Coordinator, said: “We have had a good response from businesses in getting involved with becoming more dementia friendly though other businesses are still welcome to join. Becoming more dementia friendly will help support both customers and participating  businesses themselves. Hopefully the incentive of winning the mystery shopper competition will stimulate businesses further!”

 

All businesses are recommended to download the Physical Environment Check-list and Staff handout from the following link:
