A NORTH Cumbrian hospice charity is the latest member of the Carlisle Dementia Action Alliance.

Eden Valley Hospice, based in Carlisle, has now joined the alliance, which helps support businesses and charities in how best to create an environment that is accommodating to those with dementia.

The hospice has penned a plan to make the hospice more “dementia friendly”.

A spokesman for Carlisle Dementia Action Alliance said: "Their plan is centred around ongoing work to make the hospice environment more dementia friendly, which will help them continue to provide the fantastic, vital service they already deliver.

"We're looking forward to working with them more over the coming weeks and months."
