Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease. To watch your loved one slowly fade away over the years is such a sad sight, one that too many families must endure.
In the later stages, every smile, every tear is precious as you wonder what has been understood, or remembered. The smiles and laughter for babies and small children is a wonderful thing to watch, especially when there has been no recognition or response all day.
On September the sixth, we will be taking part in the Alzheimer’s Society‘s Memory Walk in Swansea in memory of Lee’s father. David passed away last month due to this awful disease and although it was a very sad time, in a way it was also a relief as he was no longer suffering.
Now we want to help the Alzheimer’s Society to carry out their vital work ensuring that people living with dementia and their carers enjoy a better quality of life as well as fund ground-breaking research into the cause, cure, care and prevention of all types of dementia.
I would love it if you would visit my JustGiving page and donate to this fantastic charity that we, as a family, hold dear to our hearts.
