Clarien Bank donates to Bermuda Alzheimer charity

Grainne Richmond, Treasurer of Action on Alzheimer’s & Dementia

A Bermuda charity will soon be able to accept online donations after a $2,500 grant from Clarien Bank.

Grainne Richmond, the treasurer of Action on Alzheimer’s & Dementia Bermuda said the cash from Clarien would help the charity revamp its website – and allow it to accept online donations.

Ms Richmond added: “It came to our attention last year that our website needed upgrading in order to better meet the needs of our community.

“Our biggest challenge was our inability to accept donations online.

“Additionally, we realised there was some room for improvement when it came to communicating with our three key stakeholders groups, including those living with Alzheimer’s, their caretakers and families, as well as donors.”

Ms Richmond said: “With this generous donation from Clarien Bank, we are now able to update and upgrade our website, making it easier for users to get the information they need and for us to make an even bigger impact in the Bermuda community.”

AAD was set up to provide practical resources support to people with Alzheimers and dementia.

It also gives financial assistance for medications and equipment to people in need.

AAD organises weekly activities for those with dementia through a partnership with WindReach Recreational Village in Warwick, and Peace Lutheran Church in Paget – including art, music, laughter therapy, bocce ball and animal interaction.

Michael DeCouto, Clarien’s executive vice-president and chief digital & marketing officer, said: “Clarien is pleased to support Action on Alzheimer’s and Dementia in its mission to help those with dementia in Bermuda.

“One of the bank’s main aspirations is to be digital bank of choice in Bermuda, so giving a worthy organisation the tools and resources it needs to move online is very rewarding for us.”
