    Hi Russell, welcome to Talking Point. Hope you`ve got your charts with you to forecast the future. Mind you, we only have the Date of birth, but I don`t think we`ve got the time.

    Warmest welcome Russell. Thank you for coming along, and so helping to raise the profile of Alzheimers, and Talking Point.

    Welcome to TP.

    This is a wonderful forum, a real lifeline for so many of us.

    Can you tell us what your interest is in AD?

    Hello Hazel, I was a carer for around 9 years. My lovely nan had AD and in the end went totally mute with the awful thing it is

    That's a good first step - you are in good company! :D

    just ask if you need to know how to do something.

    Where are you at present?

    Hi Russell,

    sure I speak for everyone here in giving you a bit hearty welcome. Thanks for taking the time to join us :)

    This is one of the warmest and friendliest places I've seen on the web and I hope you pick up on the aura :)

    Do you mind me asking you a question:

    How do you think dementia has changed your life. I asked as it dramatically changed mine and my whole outlook on life.


    Kindest Regards
    Craig

    That's brilliant, Russell. We're all very grateful, Although a cure now will probably be too late for our loved ones, it's so important thast the work goes on.

    Love,

    The technology seems overwhelmed. So many people logged in just for you, I was unable to post.
    How do you conduct your fundraising?

    Don't worry about the technology, you just post a message, and someone will argue, or send you a big hug, depending!

    Love,
