Dementia affects so many more people as we are living longer. The condition is distressing for both those who suffer from it as well as for their family and friends. My father suffered from Alzheimer's disease for the last decade of his life so I have had personal experience of this terrible disease.
This is why I and local Conservatives were proud to take part in training to be Dementia Friends so we can be there for people who suffer from dementia.
Dementia-Friendly Deal is a fantastic initiative which is doing important work not only to help both those affected and their families, but also to educate local organisations so that we can all help dementia-sufferers live life to the full.
Here you can read about local news matters and what I've been up to. You can make comments too. I'd welcome your feedback, so please do feel free to comment!
