Dementia takes away memories and with it, the very essence of the person. This not ony impacts on them but their families. Rotarians Easing Problems of Dementia is a very active organisation which aims to help families affected by dementia. From Memory Cafes to working on Dementia Friendly Communities, Rotarians are working very hard in communities. Pam Rhodes and Geri Parlby spoke at RIBI Conference 2012 of the devastatation of dementia and the difference that support can make.
