Doug Kirk was just 52 when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He continued to work for a few years, but eventually had to give up his job as a carpenter.
But the biggest blow came when he had his driving licence taken away.
Doug’s Alzheimer’s affects his ability to understand and articulate words. He also has memory loss, and struggles to deal with stressful situations.

Severn Trent customers have been asked to look out for an illegal fitting on their toilets that could lead to their water turning bright blue.
The inlet valve that, when combined with a blue toilet block, can result in the blue toilet water being siphoned back to the kitchen tap after a loss of supply.
Essentially, the incorrectly installed valves are submerged in water in toilet cisterns and won’t cause a problem unless there happens to be a loss of supply.
Once that happens, the valve effectively ‘sucks’ the water all the way back to the kitchen tap and our customers end up with bright blue water that, for obvious reasons, they shouldn’t drink.
The company is urging people to make sure their toilets are installed correctly in line with the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme.
