“Balancing the Books”
When I first had my diagnosis of Dementia with Lewy Bodies I found it increasingly difficult to cycle due to my loss of balance, I used to do this daily traveling to work. Since I have received medication I have been able to do many different things, the thought “coming out of the fog comes to mind”. My son Mark suggested we do the Coast to Coast cycle ride as a way of thanking the Durham and Chester-le-Street Branch of the Alzheimer’s Society and suggested it would be an exciting way of raising awareness, showing that people with Dementia can still live active lives in many different ways. The money we raise will help to pay for a member of staff to support people with Dementia and their Carers in the community, in the Durham and Chester-le-Street Branch, a much needed service to assist some of the 6040 people in the County Durham area diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease of which 134 are like me under 65 years of age.
