Who is behind the Forget Me Knot campaign? Johnny Ball watched his Mother care for his Dad for nearly two decades. Being a part of her journey made it clear that those who support caregivers needed more help. The relentless demands of care commonly lead to depression and other mental health issues. Johnny wants to change that.
The Forget Me Knot crew will row nearly 4,000 miles of open ocean to raise funding and awareness for those who care for dementia patients by supporting Dementia UK Admiral Nurses. Their challenge will be long and grueling – but not compared to that faced by a dementia carer.
In the UK, Dementia UK provides specialized dementia support for families through their Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or complex for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them, giving compassionate one-to-one support, expert guidance, and practical solutions that can be difficult to find elsewhere.
