My father had dementia so I am all too aware of the impact it has not only on the person with dementia, but also on those close to them. It is important for people to know where to go to get help. No one has to walk the journey alone.

Dementia is so prevalent it’s almost inconceivable that it has remained a taboo illness for so long. It’s not until you have been touched personally by the disease that you begin to understand just how common it really is and how many families it affects.

Alzheimer’s disease can not only affect the elderly, it can also strike the young. As the people with dementia are affected, so are their loved ones and family.
