“My Father has been living with dementia for several years. It continues to be a difficult emotional journey for our family, but thanks to the AAD team, it has been made so much easier to navigate with their knowledge and guidance.”

“We hope our donation will encourage other businesses to help the Charity develop even more dementia resources within our community.”
