Voluntary Sector

With the onset of Coronavirus, Guild Care like many charities saw services change, increased expenditure and reduced income. In summary the impact of the pandemic meant that the Board of Trustees had to make difficult decisions and undertake a redundancy programme and restructure its Senior Leadership Team to cope with this new environment.

Despite these changes it is now time to focus on our future, rebuilding our charity by adapting our services to continue to support the local community, as well as investing in increasing bed occupancy in our care homes and delivering a programme of continuous improvement.

Covid-19 has highlighted how strong the community is in and around Worthing, and how much of a part of that community Guild Care is.  We understand we have a responsibility to help older people, people living with dementia and children and adults with learning difficulties in whatever way we can, and Alex’s experience will help us to further build the links we have in the community to make that happen.”

I would like to reassure everyone who benefits from, volunteers with or supports Guild Care services that these changes are in the very best interest of the charity and the people that we care for now and in the future with a  key focus  on increasing our  CQC ratings across all our homes. Doing this will support increased income generation and enable us to continue to fund our much loved and needed charitable services which have been so severely affected by the pandemic.

Yours sincerely,

Antonia Hopkins, Chair of the Board of Trustees Guild Care

Music for Dementia

M4d Radio is a group of 5 themed radio stations available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year playing music that evokes memories.
Choose your era, listen and enjoy…https://m4dradio.com/

It is part of the Music for Dementia campaign to make music available to everyone living with dementia. Our ambition is to make music freely available and a part of everyone’s care plan.

Content is developed with listeners to make sure it’s what they want and need. The themed shows and era-specific stations are a result of careful collaboration with close partners.

About music and dementia

Music is a wonderful connector and has the ability to bring people together in the here and now. It can enliven, stimulate and enable people living with dementia to express themselves creatively through musical engagement.

Research shows – and lived experiences demonstrate – that music can help reduce the often distressing symptoms of dementia, such as agitation, apathy and anxiety.

Poignantly, music supports people living with dementia to communicate beyond words. It also supports emotional health and wellbeing, particularly at a time when emotions can be overwhelming or difficult to process or manage.

So, not only does music have a valuable role to play in enhancing quality of life, it helps carers in their vital roles.
