Ross Kemp: Living with Dementia

 Alzheimer’s Society

 Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity. We campaign for change, fund research into care and cure and provide support to people affected by dementia.

 Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer, with someone developing it every three minutes. Too many are also facing dementia alone and without adequate support. At Alzheimer’s Society, whoever you are and whatever you are going through, you can turn to Alzheimer’s Society for help and advice.

 Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Connect support line 0333 150 3456 provides emotional support and practical information and you can visit alzheimers.org.uk for up to date information, services and ways to donate.

Alzheimer’s Research UK

Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity dedicated to making life-changing breakthroughs in diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. No-one has yet survived dementia, but Alzheimer's Research UK is committed to changing that. 

 Scientists are making life-changing discoveries and through pioneering science and research, we will make breakthroughs in dementia research possible.

 If you have general questions about dementia or want to know more about dementia research, Alzheimer's Research UK welcomes you to get in touch with our Dementia Research Infoline:

MPS Society

 Every eight days, a child is diagnosed with a Mucopolysaccharide (MPS) or related disease in the UK. These are genetic, life limiting diseases which cause progressive physical disability and, in many cases, severe neurological deterioration.

 As the only charity supporting individuals and families affected by MPS and related diseases in the UK, we offer the specialist support, information and advocacy that our community needs, either to make informed decisions about treatment, education, benefits or it can be to offer a friendly, listening ear during times of crisis.

Our team of qualified Support and Advocacy Workers help over 1,500 children, young people and adults through regular calls, emails and home visits across the UK. We also focus on funding and collaborating on innovative, world-class research that could make a positive impact on the lives of those affected by an MPS or related disease.  

 We put our community at the heart of what we do. Our vision is for all people affected by our diseases to live the lives they want and we know, together, we can transform lives through specialist knowledge, support, advocacy and research.
