Over 1 million people are reported to be living with Dementia in the UK.
In one way or another Dementia affects all our families and – as was the case for Alec's own family – a lack of knowledge about how to deal with it often means the last few years of a loved one’s life aren’t always as happy as they should be.
That’s why Alec organised a Dementia Summit, bringing together those who know the most about Dementia care into one forum with the aim of making Elmet & Rothwell the UK’s first Dementia Friendly constituency.
Shortly afterwards, Alec published the first Dementia Directory, signposting local families to advice and support.
