Dare devil heights for dementia

November 6, 2017

An Eastbourne lady, whose husband Derek resides with us at Clifden House dementia care centre, completed a dare devil wing walk to raise awareness and help reduce the stigma of dementia.

Delia_nDelia Spindlow, whose husband was diagnosed with dementia a few years ago said “It’s hard when someone close to you has dementia. While my husband is lucky enough to be in the superb care of Clifden House Dementia Care Centre in Seaford, I still wanted to do something to raise further awareness of this debilitating disease. “

Delia’s wing walk challenge took place on 23 September and helped raise money for Eastbourne Dementia Action Alliance, with the staff at Clifden House donating to the fundraising efforts.

Nial Joyce of Clifden House said: “I don’t think I’d ever be brave enough to do something like that! Everyone at Clifden House would like to congratulate Delia on completing her wing walk and raising money for a great cause – Eastbourne Dementia Action Alliance.”

If you would like to donate to Delia’s wing walk you can still do so by handing your donation into Clifden House Seaford and Ivy House Eastbourne.
