What Is World Alzheimer’s Month?
With the month of September being World Alzheimer’s Month, we wanted to highlight the ways in which our transport team can support patients and ensure they feel comfortable and supported.
World Alzheimer’s Month is a global opportunity to raise awareness around, educate, encourage support of and demystify dementia.
It helps to highlight issues faced by people affected by dementia and discuss how individuals and organisations can help people live well with dementia.
We understand that certain activities that others often won’t even think twice about can be extremely overwhelming experiences for individuals with dementia.
How Can EMA Help With Alzheimer’s Patients Travel?
As a dementia-friendly patient transport provider, we know that transport and travel is one area that these patients can find difficult.
This is why it is essential that these individuals are surrounded by people that help to keep them calm and relaxed, and that they are transported in a manner where they can be surrounded by everything they need and feel as comfortable as possible.
When it comes to travelling to and from hospital and medical appointments, utilising the skills and services of an experienced patient transport provider can give you the reassurance and peace of mind that your relative is in the safest hands possible.
Through our Private Ambulance Service, we are able to transport patients to appointments in a private, state-of-the-art ambulance, surrounded by our transport team who are all experienced and highly trained in supporting patients, no matter their unique needs and requirements.
As we tailor each ambulance based on each patient’s needs, we will have a range of medical equipment on board the vehicle, so our team can deal with any situation and keep the patient safe.
Alongside our caring and compassionate team, you will also be able to accompany your family member as their travel companion throughout the journey, so they have a familiar face to help them feel grounded and calm.
We are proud to be able to support individuals with dementia and make transport as stress-free and comfortable as possible for them. Find out more about our private ambulance services by visiting our webpage.

Our service can be booked by healthcare professionals, as well as the friends or family of the patient.
