A year at Jewish Care17 Jun 2014
This is the film shown at our 2014 campaign dinner. It takes us through a year in the life of Jewish Care showing the people it cares for and those who support it. Please share it with your family and friends.
“….our staff and volunteers have made our film in house, it’s a home movie if you like, with no frills, just our genuine members and residents, social workers and carers, who wanted to show you, our family of supporters, the difference you have made in the last 12 months.
.Please help us to make sure that Jewish Care never becomes just a memory of how we used to do things. Nicola Loftus, Dinner Chair.
…straight to the heart of Jewish Care…a snap shot of what we do 365 days of the year.
Today there are 800,000 people with dementia in the UK with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2021 and, because statistically members of the Jewish community live longer than others, it is an even greater issue for Jewish Care. But as our film will show it is not just those who are living with dementia that we need to be there for. It’s also their families their husbands, wives, children and friends.
While we might always have one eye on the future, the proportion of frail, older people in the Jewish community right now continues to be larger than the average across the UK, and the numbers of those we care for who live with dementia grows every day.
