Thursday, 17th November - Alzheimer's Society

Today's charity thing was the jumble sale and coffee morning at St Nic's in aid of the Alzheimer's Society. Just bought a couple of things and ran back in time for work.

When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they often feel vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. The people closest to them - including their carers, friends and family - need to do everything they can to help the person to retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth.
