Comment on Why research can’t be the only priority for dealing with the challenge of dementia by Mr John Newberry

Hi Jackie,
Just for interest ‘Sunrise’, Purley had a wonderful event last Friday for ‘National Carehome Week’ and the celebrity guest was Lionel Blair who lives at Banstead.
There was a BBQ , live music and around 5o guests, plus residents, families and friends and was a great day.
Lionel got fully involved with all the residents who enjoyed his singing and dancing activities, great therapy.
Here is an article from the local Croydon Guardian website for reference.
Both my elderly parents have been at Sunrise for 5.5 years and had a great time.
Kind regards
John Newberry
