Weddings and Alzheimers

What do Weddings and Alzheimers have to do with one another I hear you ask ?

Let your special day help someone else’s day.

Did you know that whilst you celebrate your happy day, you can also help others? If you are getting married for the second time or if you are a couple who have lived together  for a length of time the chances are you have all the household items needed and  may also have a relative living with a dementia.

This is a lovely idea to ask guests to donate money to  the Alzheimers society rather than give presents and they offer help in getting organised organised for your special day suggesting in the first instance you contact their Customer Care Team on 0845 306 0898 specialist celebration department.

In three simple steps it is possible to  improve the lives of people affected by  a dementia and add some sparkle and a little bit of something different to  wedding celebrations:

  1. Tell family and friends before the celebration you want to collect for Alzheimer’s Society
  2. Choose and order celebration items from their selection including lapel badges, key rings & table cards to let your guests know what you have chosen to do.
  3. Request that guests  send their donations  however small or large to the Alzhiemers society directly using the freepost address
  4. The suggested minimum donation for wedding favours is £1 per item.

  1. Thank you for your comment.

    I see it as my duty to speak out on behalf of the elderly. As I work with them on a daily basis I am able to see what causes them concern and issues. Really important issues I will also be raising with Jeremy Hunt the Health Minister.
    Thanks again for taking the time to comment.

  2. Hi Caron

    Great post, as always! You are a wonderful leader for the elderly – keep going, lady!!
