We wanted to run this event, as we have many clients who are affected by Alzheimer’s, and their family members are affected too.
We want to show that Ashridge Home Care have an understanding of what it’s like living with Alzheimer’s and show support for individuals and their families, friends and all our wonderful carers supporting them.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia in the UK. It can affect memory and other mental abilities and can cause significant stress. In the UK, there are currently 850,000 people suffering with Alzheimer’s and this number is due to rise to 1 million by 2025. The Alzheimer’s Society suggest that currently, 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 have dementia.
With every pound you raise, you are helping Alzheimer’s Research get one step closer to a world without dementia. Your fundraising will help fund new research and provide support to more people affected by dementia, wherever they are, whatever they are going through.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Memory Walk in aid of Alzheimer’s Society. A great way to make a real difference for people affected by dementia.
Founder and managing director Trudi Scrivener said: “A memory walk is a fantastic way to make a real difference for people affected by dementia.
“Whether you walk 10,000 steps, 10 miles or for 10 minutes, get ready to make it your walk, your way.
“You can choose to walk on your own, with clients, friends or family or even your four-legged friends.”
People with dementia have been the worst hit by the current coronavirus pandemic and they need us more than ever – across the UK a quarter of those who have died of coronavirus had dementia.
