Reg Cooper was Jane’s Dad. He had Alzheimer’s Disease, a form of dementia, in the latter years of his life.
“I was an East End boy and had ‘emigrated’ to Essex to a nice three bedroom semi with my family. When I retired I wanted to enjoy life and contribute to the community – and I wanted to have fun after all those years of hard work.
“Alas, this was not to be. I lost my purpose in life and became really down and then I started to forget little things.
“I became confused, agitated and frustrated – and needed help with small tasks and had to be reminded to eat and how to get dressed. Sometimes I put on my coat on a warm summer’s day. I even forgot how to make a cuppa.”
Jane Cooper looked after her Dad right through his experience of Alzheimer’s Disease. As someone who has a very proactive and positive approach she has discovered what works – and has helped many families through the same situation.
“I can’t change the destination, but I can make the journey better,” she says.
