Published: 17/11/2023

Right at Home East Lancashire and Ribble Valley proudly showed their support by joining over 2000 people to participate in this year's Manchester memory walk, at Heaton Park. Each year, the Alzheimer's Society hold their annual event to raise vital funds to help further research into combating dementia in the future. 

Thanks to a combined effort and excellent team work, a total amount of £1000 was raised, which will support those living with dementia. There have already been advancements in medications, that have assisted to slow the decline of early Alzheimer's.

This particular charity is one that we like to campaign for. The charity helps not only those living with dementia, but family members looking after their loved ones and struggling to maintain a daily routine. Dementia is one of the biggest healthcare challenges in the UK and globally. You can find out more about how funds raised will help those most in need by visiting www.alzheimers.org.uk
