The Alzheimer's Reading Room is the number one source of life news for the entire Alzheimer's community. The goal of the ARR is to Educate and Empower Alzheimer's caregivers. At its core the ARR is about helping caregivers, families and friends to better understand, cope, and communicate with persons living dementia.
Alzheimer's is on the shortlist to be one of Deloitte's chosen charities for 2008 and 2009, and Deloitte staff across the country are voting for their favourite charities from the list. If we win, Deloitte pledge to raise £500,000 to support Alzheimer's and dementia work in the UK.
So if you, or someone you know, works at Deloitte, please join our campaign to secure as many votes as possible. If you're on the Deloitte Facebook network, start an Alzheimer's group. Speak to family, friends, colleagues, penpals, people sitting next to you on the bus, the lad handing out the free paper in the morning - it all helps!
Voting opens on Wednesday 21 November and closes on Wednesday 5 December - so join our fight against dementia now!
