Hello, everyone!
 
 
This month's newsletter is very special to us. September saw the return of World Alzheimer's Month, and this issue is dedicated to every single person who's ever been affected by dementia.

If you enjoy reading this, why not do something amazing and send some pennies to the Alzheimer's Society? You're a good egg :)

And speaking of eggs...
 
 
It's the Great Felgains Bake Off!
 
 
 
As you might have gathered from our boys vs girls Raizer race, we're a competitive bunch here at Felgains. So for our latest team challenge - let's just say the oven gloves came off!

From, er, basic but enthusiastic entries (great Rice Crispy cakes, Libby!) to amazing profiterole stacks and even sugar work - it's safe to say we threw everything at it. And more importantly, we raised much needed funds for the Alzheimer's Society.
 
We'll accept our Hollywood handshake now, Paul...

Seeing red in dementia care
 
Before we find a cure, it's important to learn how we can help people with dementia to live as well as possible. That's why research is so important in all aspects of dementia care.

In our latest blog, we explored whether the colour red really does help boost appetite. It's a widely accepted wisdom - but is it accurate?

The day we made a Memory Box
 
Memory boxes are a great way of displaying items that dementia patients hold dear. They can help trigger happy memories and are used in care homes to remind residents which room is theirs.

This month, our thoughts strayed into what we'd put in our own Memory Box. Here's what we came up with…

Active Minds
 
From reduced-piece jigsaws to magnetic creative scenes. Our Active Minds range of puzzles and activities help people living with dementia to stay mentally active.

The range was the brainchild of Ben Atkinson-Willies who was frustrated by the lack of suitable activities his Grandad could enjoy. So he made some. Nice one, Ben.

Pure joy in a single photo. Here's our Brittany loving life beside a retro ambulance at the Emergency Services Show last week. Thanks to all who popped by the see the Raizer Emergency Lifting Chair in action. It was great to see so many positive reactions.
 
 
That’s all from us. Thanks for reading and we'll be in touch again soon.
