EachStep Blackburn is a pioneering £5m dementia care service that provides specialist respite, residential, nursing and end of life care. Community Integrated Care has strived to ensure that our home is inclusive of the entire local community. We've formed a thriving partnership with the leading South Asian community group, One Voice. This has seen us consult their members on important matter like delivering culturally appropriate support, reflecting the different tastes of residents in our catering, and employing a diverse workforce. Together, we've gained the backing of the likes of Tauheedhul Islam Girls' High School, local high schools and Indian restaurants, who have all pledged to support our home. It is our aim that this dedicated community engagement will overcome the traditional barriers that stop people from South Asian backgrounds accessing dementia care and support services
