Caring can have a big impact on both your mental and physical health, as well as your overall wellbeing.

    Hello

    Sorry I have not been in touch lately, had a lovely holiday in Greece and have been very busy of late.
    The petition about the lack of Alzheimer Drugs for early and late stage patients now stands at 2,073 votes so thank you all for your support and with the start of todays high court action by the AS I would urge you all to vote if you have'nt already done so. here is the link :- http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/alzheimerdrugs/

    After a long battle with the NHS my father was eventually prescribed Aricept as prior to this he had not been offered any of the Alzheimer's treatments available.

    I am pleased to say that after an initial down turn in his condition, probably due to the change of meds he is much improved and his memory is better,so the family are feeling much better about him.

    Hope you are all well.

    I`m so pleased your father now has the drug you wanted for him, and hope it continues to be effective.
