Before Hanna’s grandmother was diagnosed with dementia, she was the most confident person Hanna had ever known. ‘She was so understanding and really knew how to make me feel better after a hard day,’ Hanna says. ‘It’s heartbreaking to notice the decline in her abilities and speech, but I am so grateful that she is still with me and still smiling.’ Hanna joined Alzheimer's Society Cymru last year as a Regional Media Assistant. Now she is working hard to make sure people from BAME backgrounds who are affected by dementia are represented. Read more of her story. blog.alzheimers.org.uk/p...

Student Rebecca is part of a volunteer fundraising group that raises money for Alzheimer's Society. Her late grandad had Alzheimer's disease, which led to him needing 24-hour care. 'Now that I'm older, it's a lot more devastating to think about Grandad's Alzheimer's,' Rebecca says. 'I can now appreciate just how much it changed him and robbed him of the characteristics that made him who he was.' 1-7 June is Volunteers Week, and we'd like to take the opportunity to thank all our amazing volunteers.

Patrick Ettenes is 33, but he's already been through more than many people ever do. Twelve years ago Patrick found out he was HIV positive, and last year he was diagnosed with frontal lobe atrophy. Around 2% of people with advanced HIV infection develop dementia. Patrick isn't sure if his dementia is related to HIV, but he has vowed to ensure that people with HIV-associated dementia are diagnosed and supported. alzheimers.org.uk/info/2...

The typical person’s bill for dementia care would take 125 years to save for - well over a lifetime. Successive Governments have placed cost of care squarely on the shoulders of people affected, but our calculations show that even if people pre-emptively saved as they do for their pension, it would be impossible to prepare for - head to our blog for more information. blog.alzheimers.org.uk/c...

'For me, it’s about living in the moment. I don’t remember what I did a few hours ago and I’ve no idea what’s in my diary for tomorrow. So, I try to enjoy the moment, even if that means adapting. Yes, I used to enjoy baking with my grandchildren, but sadly I’m unable to do that anymore. But I’m not about to give in to the dementia. No, I just purchase a packet mix and, hey presto, perfect cupcakes every time.' - Joy, packet-mix queen, living with dementia. cupcakeday.alzheimers.or...
