Charlotte Stamp – Community Fund Raiser for the Alzheimer’s Society in Hampshire – gave a very interesting presentation at our Monday Lunch. She immediately dismissed the belief that Alzheimer’s was a normal outcome of the aging process to inform us that it is a disease of the brain which can develop in various ways including through brain injury. There are approx. 850,000 sufferers in the U.K. with approx. 25,000 in Hampshire. Apparently 1 in 20 persons under 65 years of age will suffer from this illness in some form. Charlotte expanded on the work of the Society which offered support to sufferers and their families, worked to make society more aware of the condition and leading research into finding a cure.
