This venture has developed well with the service being provided by volunteers who offer support, encouragement, and a listening ear. This has attracted the interest of major research projects, including Lancaster University’s Defying Dementia project, for which they are seeking donations – see http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/giving/mind-body/tackling-alzheimers-and-parkinsons/defying-dementia/
