The coronavirus crisis has been tough for everyone, but it has had a disproportionate impact on people affected by dementia.
People like Kevin and his wife Jeannette, who has dementia and is living in a care home. Multiple lockdowns have meant that the once inseparable couple have been kept apart for months on end. The separation and only being able to see Jean through a window left Kevin distraught.
But thanks to the money raised from our incredible supporters, Kevin has been receiving weekly Companion Calls from Rachel, an Alzheimer’s Society volunteer. These weekly calls have been a lifeline and kept him afloat.
Cycle London to Brighton for Alzheimer’s Society and help show people affected by dementia that they are not alone.
