Why sleep is so important during the coronavirus outbreak ...

'Dad became the Queen's biggest fan. He had a calendar of her photos in his office and would tip his cap to her every morning. He would ask her if she had a good night’s sleep and would make tea and toast – one slice for him, one for her.

'Whenever there was a picture of her in the paper, breaking turf at an event, he would tell people that the Queen had been round and ‘done their garden’.

'This period of Dad’s life was a special time for us both, we had such a close relationship. I accepted that Dad was different, but that he was still my Dad. I feel that helped bring us closer together; I climbed into his world with him.'

Stephanie has shared the story of her dad Ted to mark World Alzheimer's Month. She told us how his dementia diagnosis turned him into a 'naughty toddler' and a big fan of the Queen, and why talking about his concerns and wishes for his care brought them closer together. https://bit.ly/3mz6Zzu
