Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity. As research experts, they fund world-class, pioneering scientists at leading universities to find preventions, treatments and a cure for dementia.

Dementia affects 820,000 people in the UK. Around 23 million of the UK population have a close friend or family member with dementia. As well as the huge personal cost, dementia costs the UK economy £23 billion a year, more than cancer and heart disease combined. Despite these figures, dementia research is desperately underfunded.

St David’s Hospice Care is committed to providing bespoke, individual care for all our patients and their families. We work alongside patients and hope to support them at the most difficult times of their lives. It aims to ensure that patients have choice about the care they receive and maintaining dignity throughout their journey.

The Family Support Team help family members by offering support and advice, taking away the awful uncertainty and fears that loved ones have to cope with.
