Purple Angel Ambassadors

Today, Monday 30th January 2017, The Edith Ellen Foundation became Purple Angel Ambassadors.

Purple Angel Ambassadors is a Global Awareness Campaign formed in 2012 by a steering group of likeminded people who wanted to change the way people see dementia and treat others.

Norman McNamara a resident of Torbay, Devon, UK was diagnosed with dementia at only 50 years of age. Whilst out shopping one day he was rudely spoken to by a shopkeeper and this prompted him to write a piece of information so that local shopkeepers and others could better support people with dementia and their carers.  Norman McNamara wrote the "Guide to Understanding Dementia" and put that together with "What is Dementia" written by the UK Alzheimer's Society.

The Edith Ellen Foundation is proud to be a recognised Purple Angel Ambassador, joining over 600 ambassadors all raising awareness about Dementia, and supporting those affected by dementia.  We will be displaying the Purple Angel logo on our blog, website and our conference handouts.

This is a fantastic opportunity for all The Edith Ellen volunteers and our supports and we look forward to working with the Purple Angel Ambassadors around the world promoting and raising awareness about dementia.
