Bluebird Care Exeter teams up with dementia champion to create a video about supporting people with dementia during the pandemic

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the significant impact it has had on people living with dementia and those caring for them, Bluebird Care Exeter wanted to provide ideas and support to make life during the current crisis a little easier.

William Flint, Director of Bluebird Care Exeter said: "As part of our response to the COVID-19 crisis, we wanted to find a way to actively address the struggles that many people living with dementia, and those who provide care to them - both professional carers and family carers - are currently dealing with.

"We are extremely excited to have been able to collaborate with local Dementia Champion, Gina Awad on this exciting project."

Bluebird Care Exeter, Exmouth, East Devon, and West Devon Director, William Flint chose to collaborate with local Dementia Champion, Gina Awad to create an informative, interesting and insightful video.

The video is packed full of useful and actionable advice for helping people living with dementia, and those that provide care to them, to cope during the current pandemic.

Gina Awad from Exeter Dementia Action Alliance said: "It was an honour to collaborate with Will Flint at Bluebird Care to create this video and provide some useful information for families living with dementia. It’s a tough time for us all but a few tips can make a big difference."

Gina, who formed the Exeter Dementia Action Alliance in 2014, is passionate about the needs of people living with dementia and their families.

The video aims to help people across Devon and the wider UK who are living with dementia or who are caring for someone with dementia, to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic in a more informed way.
