"My father had dementia so I'm all too aware of the impact it has not only on the person with dementia but also on those close to them. It is important for people to know where to go to get help. I'm delighted that Thinko! is supporting Alzheimer's Australia to make sure no one has to walk the journey alone."

"It’s wonderful that we’re generally living longer, but it means that Alzheimer’s disease is also becoming more common. So many people have a friend or family member who has been affected by this disease, for which there is no cure at present. My father was always worried that he would succumb to Alzheimer’s, as his own mother and sister had done. Fortunately, he was still mentally sharp until he died at 87, but he would have enjoyed his old age more if he had been able to relax, knowing there was a cure. I hope the Thinko! Project attracts as much support as possible. I am inspired by the thought that a cure might be found."
