Resources - Seniors Literature
Dr Jennifer Bute is a retired GP and a sufferer of the early stages of Alzheimers. She has set up Glorious Opportunity and a website which has resources which can be used with dementia sufferers and also some videos of her own experiences, so that this disease can be better understood, especially in the way it affects those who suffer in this way and their families. This is part of Jennifer's 'legacy' to us and she has done this while she can.
