Got my own place

Doubling the Distance!

This is my second year of fundraising for Dementia UK and I’m filled with anticipation as I’ll be tackling the RideLondon-Surrey 100 later on in the year! Last year I took part in the RideLondon-Surrey 46 which was an incredible experience. However this time I want my efforts to be bigger and better than before. I know it will be a challenge but I’m so thankful that I’ll be riding with Dementia UK again; they were so supportive and knowing that my efforts will help more families face dementia is another benefit.

My dad lived in a care home for four years. Although he didn’t have dementia, most of the people around him did. It was a difficult time but the people we met became almost family to us; we supported each other and shared a lot of laughter and tears.

It was difficult visiting my dad in the home; talking to a person who has lost all communication can be really hard. After speaking to some of the families in the care home, I also know that losing the ability to communicate can be one of the main symptoms of dementia.
