Our Connections film series features supporters and family members living with dementia, highlighting the ways in which the condition affects people’s connections with their loved ones and the wider world.
We're proud to share the latest film in our Connections series with Mariel and her dad, Ray, who was diagnosed with young-onset Alzheimer’s disease at just 52 years old. This moving film showcases how Mariel and her family have tried to keep Ray connected to the world around him, even as he lost the ability to communicate with them.
If nothing changes, one in two of us will be directly affected by dementia – either by developing the condition ourselves, caring for someone with it, or both.
As the UK’s leading dementia research charity, we’re determined to stop this from becoming a reality.
We’re working to revolutionise the way we treat, diagnose and prevent dementia. But we will not stop there.
With your support, we will keep going until every person is free from the heartbreak of dementia. We exist for a cure.
