Dementia is still playing catch up.

Why? Not only are we way behind in research investment compared to other conditions, we desperately need people willing to participate in research to help find a cure, a disease modifier or just to improve the quality of our lives.We are no different to the rest of the population in our hopes and aspirations. We are different because dementia is not being treated equitably with other conditions.

We are on a mission to make a difference and with our #handouthope campaign we don’t want to make a little difference we want it to be significant and lasting.

There are some people, who can really help us to make that difference and IT IS YOU, the PROFESSIONALS. You help us manage our lives but you can help us to do more. You are the ones who see us when we are diagnosed and then support us as we continue our lives. Through your engagement, you have the means to inform your patients of the research opportunities. We know how important your time is, so please will you just #handouthope, share our message and hand over a Join Dementia Research leaflet to your patients?

It will make a difference and will add to the hope of me and my friends. Right now with a dementia diagnosis, Research is our only hope.

Please …….. will you? And if you do, THANK YOU

Hilary Doxford, living with dementia

PS I do research, it helps me personally in many many ways
