Nationally it is recognised that Dementia is known to be a major factor involved in accidental house fires and fire related injuries and deaths.
South Yorkshire Dementia Action Alliances (SYDAA) is an umbrella structure bringing together the four local Dementia Action Alliances (Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield) and South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue (SYFR) to work in partnership and deliver the Dementia Fire & Home Safety Project.
The emphasis of the project is to:
Preserve the independence and identity of people living with dementia; and
· Enable people to live well with dementia safely in their own home for as long as possible.
The video is aimed at families, friends, carers of people living with dementia and organisations that work with anyone living with dementia.
