♦ “Your dementia project is so impactful and continues to be for dad and our family. It is the one thing that brings my dad real joy and it’s the first new thing he’s engaged with in years…This means that not only is my dad’s life enriched but mine and our family too” ♦ “There is a massive difference in Hayden, he has really come out of his shell since he started doing this programme. He never used to take part in anything and now he attends all the activities in the home. The other day he was talking to the other residents about meeting Luther, I was so surprised he remembered so clearly” ♦ “My dad is so keen to come he wakes up at 3 in the morning to get ready because he can’t wait to get there. What I love the most is the smile on his face when he leaves the stadium.”
