On 30th June 2021, Mayfair Care Agency Ltd held a Cupcake Day in aid of Alzheimer's Society at our office Area in Evesham between 10.00am and 4.00pm. All were welcome to participate in various games, raffles and cake purchases / donations. Covid-19 restrictions were observed and the weather was very kind to us.

What is Alzheimer's disease?

 

Dementia is the name for a set of symptoms that includes memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. Dementia develops when the brain is damaged by diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is a physical disease that affects the brain. It is named after Alois Alzheimer, the doctor who first described it.

The brain is made up of billions of nerve cells that connect to each other. In Alzheimer’s disease, connections between these cells are lost. This is because proteins build up and form abnormal structures called ‘plaques’ and ‘tangles’. Eventually nerve cells die and brain tissue is lost.

The brain also contains important chemicals that help to send signals between cells. People with Alzheimer’s have less of some of these ‘chemical messengers’ in their brain, so the signals are not passed on as well. There are some drug treatments for Alzheimer’s disease that can help boost the levels of some chemical messengers in the brain. This can help with some of the symptoms.

Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease. This means that gradually, over time, more parts of the brain are damaged. As this happens, more symptoms develop, and they also get worse.

More than 520,000 people in the UK have dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease and this figure is set to rise.

Like Mayfair Care Agency, the Alzheimer's Society charity aim to provide a care, guidance and support service of the highest standard. Although the two are different in the actual services they offer, they come together in the goal of helping others.

This charity was chosen by Carol as one of Mayfair's charity support events of this year. We hope to raise a significant amount to help fund some of the support activities that they provide.

You can make a donation either in person at the event or via this “ Just Giving ” link.

 

Carol and the Mayfair Care Agency team would like to say a very big thank you to all that attended and donated or sponsored our Cupcake Day and helped us raise the magnificent amount of £1004 for such a worthy cause.
