Whilst we certainly can't boast QUITE this result, we can certainly boast a successful start to getting more help through my mother's door.

Mum lives independently in a Retirement Village, but over the last 6 months or so a major challenge came to our door.

#DecodingDementia2019 has helped cement for us, the reason we created MemBo Noticeboard in the first place, and our absolute commitment since then - to help people living with dementia live more independently for longer, and with better quality of...
