World Alzheimer’s Month, which begins on the 1st September and is an international campaign which has run for the past 5 years. The campaign aims to raise awareness and challenge the stigma surrounding Alzheimer’s disease across the world.

Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease and is the most common cause of dementia, which occurs when nerve cells in the brain begin to die. Symptoms can include; memory loss and difficulties speaking, thinking and with problem-solving.
Mangar Health is donating 10% off all their online orders made on their Alzheimer’s friendly product, the Mangar Camel Lifting Cushion throughout the month of September.
Simon Claridge, CEO at Mangar Health continued, “Unfortunately, people living with Alzheimer’s have a greater propensity to fall over frequently. The Mangar Camel Lifting Cushion is our Alzheimer’s friendly product, as it allows for a fallen person to be lifted safely and quickly off the floor and yet keeping stress to a minimum. This is because the person can keep their feet on the ground and so they feel more secure.”
The Mangar Camel Lifting Cushion is lightweight, easy to use, portable and is able to lift up to 70 stone. It’s powered by the innovative air compressor called the Airflo 24 which has efficient battery technology (NiMh) giving enhanced power and a long battery life.
