Today is the final day of volunteers week, a week where we focus on the positive impact and hard work of volunteers across the world.

Volunteers spend countless hours working with charities, organisations and groups they feel passionate about and want to make positive changes too.

Here at Greater Moments we have our own group of amazing volunteers, we call this very special group of ours the “Champions”.

Greater Moments champions help us to continously update and improve the Greater Moments app and inform and educate us on what it is really like as a carer as well as what it is like to like with dementia, having this group of people really helps us to understand the needs of our Greater Moments app users and come to conclusions on the features of the app we need to include.

A special thank you to our amazing Greater Moments champions for the dedication and passion they put in to Greater Moments and for going out of their way to attend our champion meetings to discuss the Greater Moments app

Thank you to the amazing Sue Metcalf and her family for your endless hard work and passion to improve the lives of people living with dementia and their carers. Sue has really helped us to understand how important it is for both carers and people living with dementia to realise that there are so many Greater Moments to be had after the diagnosis of dementia.

Thank you to Julie Bentley, Bury Social Prescriber, who is our newest Greater Moments volunteer. Julie has already helped us to understand what it is like for people living with dementia in her local area and suggested great improvements and suggestions of events, services and features on the Greater Moments app.

A big thank you to Carole Seddon and her husband Tony Seddon for helping us to really understand what it is like for a person living with dementia and a family carer, giving us insight and knowledge of both Carole and Tony’s hobbies and what they enjoy doing in their free time. Tony has really helped us to understand the power of music for people living with dementia and the positive impact this can have on an individuals wellbeing.
