NFU Mutual agents and their staff at the Pembrokeshire agency recently nominated local charity Paul Sartori
Foundation to receive a donation of more than £3,200 from NFU Mutual’s national £1.92 million Agency Giving

The rural insurer launched this fund, now in its fourth year, to help local frontline charities across the
country. The Agency Giving Fund forms part of NFU Mutual’s £3.25 million funding pledge for both local and
national charities in 2023, to assist with recovery from the pandemic and to help tackle the impact of the rising cost
of living.

The donation will enable the charity to deliver much-needed daytime care to support those living with dementia in
Pembrokeshire. There is very limited support locally with daytime respite for dementia patients which can put a
great strain on families.

Lynn Hunter, a registered nurses at Paul Sartori Hospice at Home, said: “This new funding has come at a good time after the initial trial, where we recognised a need for daytime support. We know the difference this care will make to local families supporting a relative with dementia at home. It can be exhausting. Quite often they cannot leave their loved one unattended and they get very little time to themselves, which can have a great impact on the family carer. This project will increase the resilience of the family carer and support the patient in a familiar environment where they feel comfortable and secure.”

The Paul Sartori clinical team also plays a vital role in supporting end-of-life patients and their families.
