Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. But dementia won't win. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer's Society will be here for anyone affected by dementia - wherever they are, whatever they're going through. Everything we do is informed and inspired by them. We are the UK's leading dementia charity. Every day, we work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. We provide expert information, training and support services to all those who need our help. And we are creating a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice.Let's take on dementia together. Volunteer. Donate. Campaign for change. Whatever you do, unite with us against dementia. It was heartening to read that the Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates has  set his sights on the eradication of Alzheimer’s with a £38.2m investment into the research to develop new treatments. The research will be led by the Dementia Discovery Fund, DDF, a collaboration between the UK’s  Department of Health, pharmaceutical companies and Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Captain’s Message for 2018

Having moved up to Rutland from Essex four years ago, I was looking for a new club to join.  What distinguished Rutland County for me as compared to its possibly more illustrious neighbours, was how friendly and welcoming everyone was.  I was soon "absorbed" into the seniors family, playing every week with different characters (of varying degrees of skill and age!).The condition of the course now is superb - the fairways, in particular, are as good as any course I have played.  The layout offers challenges to the lower-handicappers with its slopey greens and almost constant wind, yet is relatively friendly to the odd (in my case "frequent") wayward shot. I'm looking forward to a rewarding year and to making more friends. Keep your head still and enjoy your golf!"

Types of Dementia It can be confusing so we thought the following explanation would be of interest. There are various types or causes of dementia. It is possible for someone to have a combination of these types.   Dementia and research grants in recent years have focused on the four most common types – Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, vascular dementia and frontotemporal dementia. It has been common for many years to use the word “Alzheimer’s” to refer to all forms of dementia, and the largest charities dedicated to combating dementia have tended to use “Alzheimer’s” in their name
