"He says: ...'There are six men in the group and we meet on a regular basis. We are able to relate to each other better than we could to other people.

'If there's anything bothering us we are able to talk openly about it. It's an absolute godsend to us all.'
John McErlane at homeAs well as spending time together the group have been involved in projects to help raise awareness of dementia.
