Jane’s story 2017-07-18T10:59:24+00:00

Jane Clarke, 70, and her husband John, 76, from Hellesdon celebrated their golden wedding anniversary this year.  Jane says John was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010.

“When we first had the diagnosis we thought it was the end of the world, but it’s not. We’ve met so many nice people.

John absolutely loves singing, so we really enjoy the Come Singing group in Costessey. We also go to the Pabulum café. There are some lovely people who go there. John has good days and bad days, so getting out can really help.

We’ve been married for 50 years this month. He tells me every day he loves me, even though he forgets other things. I’m very lucky. We’ve always been there for each other.”
