Stuart our Sales Manager here at CVSL and his mate Dave are attempting to cycle across the Trans Pennine Trail (Southport to Hornsea – 220miles) in as close to 24 hours as possible in aid of Alzheimer’s.
Stuart recently lost a member of his family to Alzheimer’s and it wasn't until he and his family had been through the trauma that it really hit home how emotionally devasting the disease is to all those affected. He saw at first hand how hard it is when the person you love has no recollection of who you are it becomes very soul destroying for the family who actually become the carers.
There is no formal programme currently available for carers of people with dementia and that's where we can all make a huge difference. With our support The Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer Scotland will be able to launch the first UK wide dementia carers programme, giving 9,000 carers the information and skills they need to support their loved one to live well with dementia.
