Berlin, 3 October 2017 – At the 27th Alzheimer Europe Conference in Berlin last week, Prof. Bob Woods (Bangor University, Wales, United Kingdom) presented the top line results of a five-country survey on the experience of 1,409 carers of a diagnosis of dementia. Amongst the key reported findings:
We had some great press coverage last week in both local and national papers – and on their websites too. In case you missed it across our social channels, below are the links if you want to check them out.
We were excited to receive the final photos from our shoot with Anna Moffat, Edinburgh based photographer, last week. The images look amazing and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved. The children acted like pros, the adults were on their best behaviour and Little Lana kept everyone in check.

Just a quick post about where we’re at with the Ally Bally Bee Project at the moment – the project behind the world’s first children’s book about dementia that my husband Matthew has been working so hard on for over 2 years now. I’m excited to say that the book is finally here and has been sent out to everybody who ordered it through Kickstarter, woohoo!
In case you missed it, we were fortunate enough to have our project feature on BBC Radio Scotland’s morning show. We’re not sure if listeners outside of the UK can listen to it – but you can give it a go 🙂
The Ally Bally Bee Project is on a mission to create the world’s first personalised children’s book about dementia. We’re now entering the final stretch of the project but it has not been an easy journey.

Just a quick post to let you know we’re going to Alzheimer Europe’s annual conference in Copenhagen! We submitted an abstract about our mission to produce the world’s first personalised children’s book about dementia – and they liked it 🙂
