Beechwood Grove chooses Eastbourne Dementia Action Alliance as their charity for the year
Residents and team members at Beechwood Grove Care Home recently chose the Eastbourne Dementia Action Alliance (EDAA) to be its Charity of the Year.
The team at the home will carry out some internal and external fundraising activities running alongside EDAA volunteers over the coming year.
Dean Haffenden, General Manager at Beechwood Grove, said “We feel honoured to be representing a local charity very close to our hearts this year, we look forward to working with Eastbourne Dementia Action Alliance and raising as much money as we can for the charity”.
EDAA Trustee Jenny Eldridge said: “I really appreciate Beechwood Grove choosing us as their Charity of the Year. Every penny raised will be spent to make things just that little bit easier for those living with dementia locally and in the surrounding area.”

Learning about dementia and what services are actually available locally can be stressful and very difficult for those affected, and their families. The EDAA’s purpose is to provide the best available information to help people through this challenging time, and to raise awareness of dementia issues.
Through initiatives such as the Eastbourne Dementia Inclusive Community Charter, the EDAA and its partner organisations want to ensure people living with dementia are able to continue to live full lives with the help and support of local care homes like Beechwood Grove.
