Thelma has already decided to include us in her will and leave a lasting legacy to Alzheimer Scotland. Here she tells us why it is so important to her to continue to support us, in memory of her husband, Ted.
My interest in Alzheimer
Coming from a health care background I detected there was a problem with my husband’s memory. He was therefore diagnosed early on in his journey over 6 years ago, and following a brain scan immediately commenced treatment.
Sadly the resources and services now available were not available then and it was only in the latter stages that I became aware of what I and my husband could benefit from through Alzheimer
In the early stages we would have benefited particularly from the current integration of community support co-ordinating health and social care which Alzheimer Scotland has supported, and now, in line with new government policy, the guaranteed one year’s post diagnostic support from a named, trained person.
I therefore continue to donate regularly to Alzheimer
