We provide help and hope to everyone living with dementia.


At the moment, dementia is incurable and available treatments are limited. But cutting-edge research is on the brink of life-changing breakthroughs.

The month of September marks World Alzheimer’s Month with World Alzheimer’s Day on 21 September being the focal point of global activity and awareness raising. This Autumn our homes are supporting the Alzheimer’s Society by making personalised home-made crafts for loved ones to buy. All funds raised will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Society that campaign for change and fund vital research to find a cure and support people living with dementia today.

Four things you should know about dementia

1. Dementia is not a natural part of ageing

Dementia is not a natural part of ageing and it doesn’t just affect older people. Over 40,000 people under 65 in the UK have dementia. This is called early-onset or young-onset dementia.

2. Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain

Diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease cause nerve cells to die, damaging the structure, chemistry and function of the brain.

3. It's not just about losing your memory

When most people hear the word dementia, they think of memory loss, but dementia can also affect the way people think, speak, perceive things, feel and behave.

4. People can still live well with dementia

Until a cure is found, support and treatments are available that can help with symptoms and managing daily life. These can allow people with dementia to lead active, purposeful lives and carry on doing the things that matter to them most.

We have suggested a minimum donation for each item, should you wish to make a greater donation please feel free to do so. 

There is currently no cure for dementia however with advances in science we hope that each day will bring us a step closer to finding one.   

Thank you!
