Sir,

As we mark Dementia Action Week, I would like to inform your readers of the support available to people living with dementia and their loved ones across the UK.

Being diagnosed with a life-changing condition like dementia is often incredibly overwhelming and can leave couples and families feeling unsure of where to turn when they are in need of support.

I would like to reassure your readers that they need not face things alone, as Revitalise is available to help.

Revitalise, a national charity, provides respite holidays for disabled people and carers.

We are the UK’s leading experts in providing holidays for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia through our specially tailored breaks.

We appreciate that a change in routine and scenery can feel especially daunting for someone living with dementia.

That’s why we’ve taken a great deal of care and consideration to ensure that all aspects of our Alzheimer’s holidays are designed with our guests in mind, enabling carers and their loved ones to spend quality time together once more, and to have the chance of a proper break.

For more information about Revitalise, specialist Alzheimer’s holidays, or to request a brochure please visit: www.revitalise.org.uk, or call 0303 303 0145.

Stephanie Stone,

Revitalise.
