It's been a little whilst since we last posted here and this is in no small part to some of the work we've been doing behind the scenes at Healthcare Services UK. You may already have noticed that we have improved the search function on the website to return better results for you. We are also working on improving the information on the website on each product, so you've got a better idea of the right products for you to use and to help you find them first time, every time.
We've also been watching the news for interesting stories about progress in the battle against dementia, helpful tips and tools for caring for those with a dementia, and building up more resources and guides for you all to use to that end too. There will be much more on that in the coming months.
We'd like to share some of those stories below with you all now.
Wem Town Hall where a new Dementia Friendly screening has taken place.
This is Wem Town Hall, where on Monday 17th December, there was a "Singing Session" where those with a dementia, and their carers, could attend and enjoy singing along to classic movie songs.
We've previously mentioned other groups in the country who arrange these important events where carers and those with a dementia can enjoy some social time and respite. We will continue to share this news and we hope to have many more to tell you about!
Passion for care
The passion at the heart of Healthcare Services UK comes direct from the heart of our MD, Jo Bonser. If you have not yet heard about Jo's story and why helping those with a dementia is so important to her, then we urge you to head over here and watch the video.

In Case You Missed It!
November 27th was "Tasty Suppers" day, a day set up by the team behind Nutrition and Hydration week. The day, along with the other awareness day of Thirsty Thursday is designed to remind us of the importance of keeping those in our care well fed and cared for. We have a range of product solutions to help you with this, some of which are shown in the image on the right.
These include plates and bowls which keep food warmer for longer, adapted cutlery which is easier to hold for those with limited strength in their hands and reduced mobility and cup and mugs with lids to both keep things warm and help reduce spillages.
You can see more products on the website.
Keep popping back because there will be more to come, both in updates on the website but also with our other services and how we keep you informed of what we're up to here at Hcsuk.
