Pastiche has both past and present members, including family members and relatives, who have been affected by dementia in one way or another which is why we have chosen to support Alzheimer’s Society for this show.
Alzheimer’s Society’s aim is to make dementia a priority in health and social care and to overturn the misconception that dementia is an inevitable part of ageing rather than a terminal illness. There are over 900,000 people with dementia today and many more caring for them.
With over 40 years experience, Alzheimer’s Society is the only dementia charity that tackles every aspect of dementia, they provide telephone support, local support, activity groups, an online community, and provide information and support on a variety of matters including legal and financial advice, help with care, help with daily living and advice on staying independent. They are also involved in funding ground breaking research in treatment and care and in campaigns to increase awareness. All donations are a welcome step in helping towards a more positive outcome for those living with dementia. www.alzheimers.org.uk
On behalf of everyone at Pastiche and involved with our production, thank you for any donation you wish to make to our bucket collection.
