Dementia NI member Gerard was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease during the Covid-19 lockdown.

He hasn't met any of the members in person, due to Covid restrictions, but has been actively taking part in the weekly online Empower and Support Groups. Gerard wrote this song as a way to say thank you to the members for their support and friendship. Joining the Empower and Support Groups has been a lifeline to Gerard who enjoys the mixture of friendship and 'work'. Most recently, as part of his membership, Gerard has been working with Craigavon Hospital on the redesign of one of their wards.

Thank you Gerard for allowing us to share this song and thank you for writing it!
