Charities we proudly support
Dementia, and the various forms of this cruel condition including Alzheimer’s disease, affects so many people. My late father who passed away last year was suffering from the onset of Alzheimer’s as well as other complications. He spent his last year in hospital needing support and was frequently confused and forgetful.
It is painful for people with dementia and all those around them.
We have seen many people with Alzheimer’s, even as young as 60, transform from being the life and soul of the party to a human, completely unaware of their family and friends, walking around in absolute confusion and reliant on support 24 hours a day.
Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading research charity aiming to defeat dementia. The charity funds world-class research studies that provide the best chance of beating dementia sooner. This pioneering work focuses on prevention, treatment and a cure for dementia. We have committed to donate a percentage of our profit to the charity and as the company grows, engage staff with programmes to raise funds for this amazing charity dedicated to finding a better future.
Alzheimer’s Research UK aims to empower people across all generations through greater understanding of dementia. To this end, it produces a range of high-quality leaflets and booklets about different aspects of dementia, as well as extensive dementia information on its website. There is also a dedicated website for children and young people, with information about dementia and the brain tailored to three different age groups. The charity’s Dementia Research Infoline is open Monday-Friday, 9am – 5pm, providing information to the public about dementia and dementia research, as well as helping people to volunteer for dementia research studies. Visit the website, www.alzheimersresearchuk.org, to find out more about the charity’s work.
Dogs are our best friend and having pets may help stimulate the mind, particularly in old age when close relatives have passed away. Companionship and the responsibility of having a pet to look after can help keep the mind active and provide a sense of purpose. We all know people with dementia and doing something about it today will help take away the fear of old age many of us have.
