Betty

Condition:

Betty is 84 and has vascular dementia. Her son says “She was diagnosed 8 years ago but because she has a daily walk with her carer she has stayed on her feet and not wasted away.”

“Mum was getting very bored just sitting in the house. She can’t read or do anything to keep her brain occupied. She really enjoys the fresh air and getting out – even though she has no idea where she’s going.”

Her carer always walks with her, she says “It’s better for me too, I enjoy the walk and it’s great to see Betty enjoying herself.”
