Simon McDermott’s father has been a singer throughout his life. He earned the name “The Songaminute Man” because of the many songs he knew. Sadly, he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease just a few years ago. Once the disease began to take hold, he started to forget Simon was his son. After the devastating news, Simon and his family didn’t know what to do or where to go for advice to help his dad. Simon learned that the Alzheimer’s Society provide a telephone helpline to those who have the disease and their families. The advice and help they received is priceless. With the help of his family, Simon got his dad back by getting him to sing again! In an effort to give back to those who have helped him, Simon has begun to film his father and share the incredible memories with the world in the hopes of raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
