Dementia Action Alliance – National Group
Dementia Action Alliance brings together leading organisations across England committed to transforming health and social care outcomes for people affected by dementia.

Why get involved?
On a personal level, my grandmother suffered from dementia for more than 10 years. Socially, and in my work as a funeral director, I am constantly subjected to and involved with families in similar situations and as such, have first-hand experience of clients and their families coping with dementia. Many of the nursing and residential care homes I visit deal with the ever-increasing numbers of people who are living longer with numerous forms of ‘age-related’ diseases. All these factors not only affected me but prompted me to enrol myself, and our ‘team’ at work, on a ‘Dementia Friends’ awareness session run by Hospiscare, Exeter, soon after our Exmouth & District Funeral Services premises opened in March 2017.

Nominated Funeral Planner of The Year 2017
Funeral Directors Exeter

The starter’s gun has been fired on the Funeral Planner of the Year Awards 2017. Golden Charter has confirmed the qualification period will run from 1 January 2016 to 31 March 2017.

Other changes see a refresh of the categories, as Golden Charter’s Director of Funeral Director Sales, Malcolm Flanders, explained: “Your feedback from this year’s celebration said the number of awards should be reduced to ensure the winners receive the attention they so richly deserve, so we will have two categories: one for those who carry out 50-249 funerals a year, and one for 250 plus.”

There will be five newcomers, and three national awards. A tiered awards system, with the best pre-need to at-need ratio gaining different levels of award, is also planned. Further details will soon be released.

Family and trusted funeral directors working across the Exeter area

Shoobridge Funeral Services: local, independent, family funeral directors have been nominated for, ‘Funeral Planner of the Year 2017’.

Paul Shoobridge said, “Being nominated for such a desirable award was humbly, wonderful but the important part of the process was to facilitate a program for the future, for members of the public - to provide a service that lists everything as a choice with the clarity necessary to prevent confusion enabling the future, at-need representatives, to move forward with the unimpaired intention of the actuator of the pre-need plan.”

That the award is for the title of, 'Funeral Planner of the Year 2017,' is totally reflective of the 'team' effort that produces the results for Shoobridge Funeral Services. Our staff work together to provide a comprehensive but caring service in all areas of the work that we undertake with the primary desire to serve the families that we represent because of the belief that drives us to strive for the best.

"We are constantly reflecting on the services we provide to try to improve the choices given to the public whilst looking for innovative ways to uniquely represent our clients and their families."

From its initial, independent foundation in 1993 to the present day, Shoobridge Funeral Services has carried-on the traditions of undertaking with a modern outlook and changing approach that is demanded by the public as both ‘their’ knowledge has grown on what was considered a ‘taboo’ subject, to the dawning of the freedom of information exchange that is now common through the Internet. Thankfully, both new and traditional approaches to funerals have maintained their high levels of dignity whilst coexisting and facilitating the more modern, ‘Green Funeral’ approaches as well as supplying the large number of alternatives that are now seen regularly.
