  1. Big excitement!

    I have been to London to take some photos for the the forthcoming Alzheimers campaign called "Remember the person"
    We had our pictures taken (in my case in my walking gear!)
    It was very well organised, and Tony came as well so I didn't get lost in London!

  2. First blog post!

    Firstly let me introduce myself, I'm Heather and 17 years old and around half a year ago my dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I do not live with him as my mum and dad are divorced and only recently started seeing him again after 2 years of not about 2-3 weeks ago.

  5. Happy Birthday and thank you Skype!

    Yesterday was my Uncle's 81st birthday. The NH arranged a Skype call to us in the morning and it worked brilliantly. Uncle was looking good although the sun was shining directly onto the web cam and so the image of him was a little dark. He recognised my mum's voice and was able to register that the image on the screen was her talking to him. She asked him if she looked like their mum as her hair is now white like her's and he said "yes you do". He seemed to appreciate our gifts and he ...
