A lifeline for loved ones

I want to share an article that captures our story and was recently published in the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The article tells the story of Amanda’s journey caring for her mother, Margaret, who had Alzheimer’s. She didn’t want to go to a care home, so Memory Lane was founded. It’s been seven years, and we now support 20 dementia patients daily. Our goal is to provide a middle ground, keeping loved ones at home longer. The centre has become a lifeline for families.

“Amanda Botterill, from Yeadon, can remember the day her mum, Margaret Bradford, received her alzheimer’s diagnosis. Despite Margaret showing symptoms of the condition for two years prior, Amanda said the diagnosis left them both “shell-shocked”.

Margaret then made her daughter promise to not send her to a care home. It was Margaret’s own first-hand experience as a carer seeing how dementia patients could be treated, being “locked-up” for her safety and for the safety of others, that led her to make this promise.”
