Raglan celebrated 40 years of helping people with dementia in the community on Friday 25 September 2015.
We were joined by service users, carers and staff who have been touched by the work of the dementia day centre. We were also delighted to welcome the Mayoress of Camden, Councillor Larraine Revah, who praised the work being done at Raglan.
She said: “We all know dementia care is a real challenge across the country and we’re very proud to be celebrating the fact that Raglan have been operating now for 40 years. Raglan not only provides dementia care for people living in Camden but also much needed respite for families and carers.
“The staff provide a stimulating environment for those who use the service. When I walked in here I noticed the fantastic art displayed around the centre, and it’s lovely to see all the talent and work that is being produced.
“Thank you for inviting me here and I know everyone worked really hard to pull it all together. We’re 40 years old so let’s go and celebrate.”
At Raglan our service users will always have someone to support them. They're assigned a key worker who will get to know their needs and ensure we are able to meet these.
Staff host a range of activities in stimulating, social environments like community trips to the royal parks and local museums, run gardening sessions and more.
