Justine Pickering, who founded a respite centre in Barry for people with early-onset Alzheimer's and their families, has been given an MBE. She has been recognised 'for services to people with dementia and for charitable services to the NSPCC.'
Justine's mother was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's. She opened the 'Ty Hapus' centre last year. It's the first support centre of its kind in Wales - offering facilities both for people with dementia and a cafe area for their families.
