Meet Reg

Photos Of Jane and Dad and Landscape 019Reg Cooper was Jane’s Dad.  He had Alzheimer’s Disease, a form of dementia, in the latter years of his life.

Reg’s story:

“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.

If you think you’d like to take a proactive approach to Alzheimer’s in your own family Jane can help. Just call her on 07801 287 213 or
