Andrew Tremlett Associates ("Rolling Back The Years")

We create sturdy, robust and practical folders containing national advertisements and editorial from the 1930’s through to the 1980’s. There are currently 6 unique volumes for each decade. The folders are used in a “PICK & PUT DOWN” format and can be used for a minute or two or much longer and have to exist in an open place, ie not stored on a bookshelf or in a pile of magazines.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We have created a product which enables carers and home carers improve the quality of life for people living with dementia but just as importantly their carers. It especially brings back some joy in dealing with or visiting people living with dementia.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Encouraging all carers in our society to realise that dementia shouldn’t be feared and that there are ways of using the folders by way of reminiscence material contained in them that can lead to a much better understanding of the situations carers find themselves in.

2. Actions

  • Language

    Ensure that the language used in all advertising materials for our product is appropriate and where content of the folders might be inappropriate (WW2 ?) can be replaced. One of the beauties of the folders is that you can change the pages.
