Alzheimer's Support has kept us going this year. I don't know how we would have coped without the calls from someone who understands. Having your visits again, and now the club back open, has been a lifesaver for Mum - and for me.

Will you help make Christmas easier for people living with dementia this year?
 

Christmas is all about togetherness. Families and friends connecting, sharing moments and memories. But for people living with dementia, like Betty above, the festive season can be a lonely time. And in this year of Covid, families affected by dementia have been more isolated than ever. 

We're proud of how we supported our families throughout the pandemic. Our specialist staff provided support and advice throughout lockdown. We reopened our one-to-one home visits in May and moved heaven and earth to safely re-open day clubs and community groups in late summer.  

How you can help

We need your support now to ensure more families living with dementia get the essential services they need this Christmas and into the future. 

We spend 96p in every £1 on front-line services here in Wiltshire, so you know your donation will be well spent on the people that need it most. Please help to make a difference for people living with dementia this Christmas. 

Please don't forget people living with dementia this Christmas.

What they say

Jackie, you have no idea how much Alzheimer's Support are making a difference to us as a family. Since Mandy became Mum's support worker we have gone from struggling and just about existing, to enjoying spending time and doing special things together. Instead of worrying about what the future holds, we are enjoying life and relaxing.

Going back to the day club for the first time today was so emotional for us. From gratitude and relief. Words cannot convey how much the club means. 

I wish I could have filmed Mum's reaction to the online music. She lit up like a beacon, animated, interacting, laughing and talking me through it. it just took her off to a place where she is obviously so incredibly comfortable. Thank you so much.
