It’s probably fair to say that 2020 has been the year none of us saw coming. For many, our end-of-year thoughts will include reflections about a lot more challenge, change and loss than we’d ever have expected.
We need to acknowledge and honour this, though it’s important to also remember the incredibly inspiring ways that we have found to support each other through this time. The number of volunteers who’ve stepped up has been heartening, from helping neighbours with food shopping to keeping in touch with people through Companion Calls.At Alzheimer’s Society, we’ve been embracing a great deal of change and innovation to make sure that we’re here for even more people affected by dementia in 2021 and beyond. Of course, it’s you, our supporters, who make any of this possible in the first place – thank you.
Whether you carry on getting the magazine by post or choose to switch to our new email version (see p31), we’ll still be sharing the real-life stories, news and ideas that make a difference.
