As the promised treatments for Alzheimer’s disease have failed one after another and the disease is threatening to reach epidemic proportions, reaching out to the public has become ever more urgent. We have made it our mission to increase the awareness of this terrible disease and draw attention to the immediate need for funding and research in the field.
We aim to raise public awareness of the modifiable (environmental and lifestyle) risk factors for Dementia in an effort to help people prevent or at least delay the onset of the disease.

Inspired by real-life stories the play, written by Brian Daniels, explores with humour and insight the impact of early onset dementia on two very different Yorkshire families before and after diagnosis.
