Wonderful news

The Department of Social Welfare and the association of relatives of patients with Alzheimer's and other dementias,  'Acuérdate de mí', plan to close a collaboration agreement between them which will provide  the association with social centre facilities.

Next week, the group will hold a series of events to celebrate World Alzheimer's Day which will culminate in the signing of the agreement to launch a respite care unit for Alzheimer's patients. The association also plans to organize a charity dinner at the restaurant Charlot in the near future to raise funds for their activities.

Readers of this blog will already know that our very good neighbour Eladia Grau is a key member of the association. She and the other members work hard to provide an invaluable service to the relatives of Alzheimer suffers. Having had a close relative who suffered from dementia, Pam and I know how stressful it can be for the family to cope. We were fortunate enough to find an excellent care home for Pamela’s father but others either do not have the means of cannot find suitable care and have to try and cope in their own homes.
