The Alzheimer's Society in Wales has claimed too many people are being left without support after they are diagnosed with the illness.

The charity said the Welsh government had shown a commitment to improving things by funding information packs, but claimed that support from local health boards varied widely across the country.

Joyce Baker, a retired teacher from the Vale of Glamorgan, was diagnosed with Alzheimers in 2008 at the age of 57.

She said she and her husband Peter vowed not to let her dementia get them down.
