Yes, the annual appeal is in progress, and YES I have made a contirbution. My question, HOW CAN WE MAKE 'DEMENTIA' an acceptable ground for appeals. I am the treasurer of our local A.S. (for my sins), and I know just how hard it is to raise the awareness of A.S. We are the explosion waithing to happen. How do we raise awareness. Cares have more than enough to do caring for loved ones. Any suggestions. Keep smiling, Connie.
