Ian Thomas - Director of Services Alzheimer’s Society :
“Dear Peter and Gary
I wanted to write to you both personally to thank you for the enormous contribution you made to the conference on Tuesday. (July 13th Act on Dementia)
It was extremely brave of you Peter to show the film and talk in the way in which you did. I know how hard it must have been - and the impact on you was clearly enormous. I felt though that the impact you made on some very influential people was also enormous and no one could have done it better. Thank you.
And thank you Gary for sitting on the panel after the opera. Again this is not easy - but you handled the questions with knowledge and confidence. Of all of us sitting there you were the expert because you are living with it - and I think we all recognised that. Thank you
Having lived through dementia with both my mother and my sister I do know what it is like. All I can offer you is the support of the organisation - I hope we will be able to meet your needs, and my personal support and thanks for doing such a valuable job for people with dementia and their carers across Wales.”
