How Everton Helped Tommy Rebuild His World After Alzheimer's Diagnosis

On World Alzheimer's Day, we highlight work of Club charity in supporting those with dementia and their families.

"It felt like my world had collapsed."

That is how Tommy Dunne describes discovering, at the age of 57, he had the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

Years on, with the help and support of Everton in the Community's Pass on the Memories programme, Tommy has not only pieced that world back together but become a positive role model in raising dementia awareness around the country, spreading his message that you "live with" not "suffer from" conditions like Alzheimer's.

To mark World Alzheimer's Day, we remind you of Tommy's story, initially told as part of Everton in the Community's 'Proud to be Blue' campaign, and highlight the ongoing work of the charity in providing social activities, support and advice to those living with dementia and their families.

Everton in the Community engages with 180 individuals each week through Pass on the Memories and has a retention rate of over 90 per cent. The programme attracts both males and females, Everton and Liverpool fans, as well as non-sports fans.
