Alzheimer’s Breaks 2016

Help with Funding


Because our Alzheimer’s trained care staff are on hand at all times to support you and your loved ones, you have the space to reconnect as loved ones and become husband and wife, father and daughter once more.

Our hope is that you gather the confidence to hand over all your care worries to us, freeing your focus on reconnecting with your loved one.

Our attention is lavished every bit as much on the carer as on the cared for. On every Alzheimer’s Week, carers have the option to a special evening out. You will have the unique opportunity to relax in the company of fellow carers and completely switch off from your caring role, secure in the knowledge that your partner is happy and well looked after.

Our aim is very simple – to give you quality time with the one you love.
