A local home care professional has been selected for the final of the National Dementia Care Awards 2018.

Amie Blott is a Home Care Coordinator at the Wilmslow branch of Carefound Home Care. She was nominated for the Dementia Care Champion Award which recognises an exceptional person who has done great things in improving the life of people living with dementia.

Amie said:

“I am delighted to have been made a national finalist for this dementia care champion award. Supporting people living with dementia means a huge amount to me and I feel very proud to help people living with the condition in Cheshire and spread awareness by helping local people and organisations become Dementia Friends.”

Winners of the National Dementia Care Awards will be presented with their trophies by Hazel Blears at the high profile Gala Night held on Thursday 8th November at the Hilton Brighton Metropole attended by over 400 guests.
