    Hi everyone, I just wanted to ask everyone if they've got any ideas that I could do to fundraise for this charity? To support those who are suffering watching a loved one. Thank you

    I do the Alzheimers memory walk again this year. Maybe there is one near you and you can take part. I raised nearly £400 pounds last year :)

    We spend a lot of time "spring cleaning " our elderly parents house. I take my husband along who has Alzheimer's and he does all the garden work and cuts trees and shrubs, so he's kept busy. But it's still a lot of fun!

    Being busy and feeling needed is so important . My hubs does lots of gardening too with frequent brakes though .
