The Alzheimer’s Society is a national charity that helps to create a better world for people affected by dementia and is transforming the landscape of the illness forever. Until the day a cure is found, the society offers those affected and their families, support and acceptance to help them live in the community without fear or prejudice.
Well Done James!
