Throughout Ted’s life, he was a singer and entertainer, performing for audiences throughout England. Sadly, as his Alzheimer’s disease progressed, he could no longer recognize his loved ones and he would have sudden outbursts. But his family eventually figured out that singing was the key bringing him back. “Now when we’ve got him singing again he’s back in the room,” Simon says. “It’s these moments that we treasure.”
So in the video below that has gone viral, we see Simon and his dad singing so joyously while driving around. And there’s a wonderful reason that Simon has decided to share this video: he’s hoping to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society so that we can hopefully one day find a cure for this terrible disease.
