Wife's message for Alzheimer's advertisement
THE words of a wife who is slowly losing her husband to Alzheimer’s disease are being featured in a powerful advertising campaign.
Barbara Pointon, 66, has been caring for her husband, Malcolm, 65, at their home in Thriplow for 14 years.
Until dementia began to destroy his life, Mr Pointon was a brilliant piano player and music lecturer at Homerton College, Cambridge.
Now the couple’s experience is being highlighted in a prime-time television campaign showing the devastating impact of the disease.
