Alzheeimers Society LogoAlzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia which affects 62 per cent of those diagnosed. Dementia are brain disorders that trigger a loss of brain function; these conditions are all usually progressive and eventually severe.  There are 750,000 people with dementia in the UK with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2021. Dementia currently costs the UK 20 billion per annum, and this figure will rise to 27 billion per annum by 2018.

There is no cure for Alzheimer's disease or any other type of dementia. Delaying the onset of dementia by five years would halve the number of deaths from the condition, saving 30,000 lives a year.

Alzheimer's Society invests over 6 million in dementia research to improve care for people today and find a cure for tomorrow.  The Society also works closely with patients and carrers providing both information and support.

Isabel Hospice LogoIsabel Hospice was founded in 1982 by a number of dedicated people inspired by Isabel Last who herself had cancer.  It became a registered charity in 1983 and works throughout the eastern Herts area covered by Broxbourne Borough Council, East Herts District Council and Welwyn Hatfield Council.

The philosophy of the Hospice has always been to affirm the uniqueness of the individual and to focus on the highest possible quality of life for each patient in our care.  Isabel Hospice is an independent body and is supported mainly by donations from the public. All care given by the Hospice is free to our patients.
