Charity that cares for carers

Published 11/07/2011

Do Belfast Telegraph readers know that there are 750,000 people with Alzheimer's or dementia in the UK? This number is set to rise to more than a million people with dementia within 10 years.

Caring for a loved one with dementia can be a lonely, stressful experience. So many carers are in need of respite. I work for a charity called Vitalise. Each year thousands of carers enjoy breaks at our respite centres. For information tel (0845) 345 1970 or e-mail bookings@vitalise.org.uk.
