Less amusing are the jokes I’ve experienced throughout my five years working at Alzheimer’s Research UK with dementia used as a punch line.
Alzheimer’s disease is mostly thought of as a memory problem. But as many who deal with the disease know, this isn’t the only problem people experience.
I’ve never really taken part in a challenge for charity before; to be honest I’m not one to indulge in strenuous exercise much either. But recently I found myself signing up to do a 450km cycle challenge across Vietnam for Alzheimer’s Research UK and am about to embark on a journey that will test and push some emotional, mental and physical boundaries.
