A bunch of large, metal forget-me-not blooms now stand tall in the front yard of Rhondda and John Wainwright's Eaglehawk Road home.
Lovely as they are, they are not simply garden ornaments: their purpose is to bring awareness to younger onset dementia.
Almost four years ago, Rhondda and John's 39-year-old daughter Meagan Anderson was diagnosed with behavioural-variant frontotemporal dementia, after years of symptoms.

When dementia struck, Meagan was married, had two small children, and worked as a bookkeeper in both her husband and her sister Sarah Wainwright's businesses.
Sarah said the first signs of Meagan's dementia were small things they did not pay much attention to, such as forgetting a password.
Meagan's behaviour also changed, she said, but the family thought it was due to postnatal depression.
But now, Sarah describes the person Meagan was before dementia and the person she is today as two different people.
Rhondda cares for her daughter around the clock, with the assistance of carers from Amicus for a few hours six days a week, as Meagan is unable to perform even basic living tasks for herself.

Driven by their own experiences, the Wainwrights want to bring awareness to the condition and the need for more funding for research.
They commissioned local artist Stephen Brown to create the six-foot-tall forget-me-nots - the symbol for dementia - using funds raised by Meagan's friends.
The flowers are accompanied by a sign made by the team at YBI Creative.
"We need money for research, to try and find a cure, and so if people are faced with what we've been faced with, there's that knowledge there," Rhondda said.
Doctors do not know why Meagan developed dementia.

Sarah said there was also a stigma around the condition.
"It's not just old people that suffer with dementia, and it's bloody cruel," she said.
"There are different forms and it's not just memory loss."
Meagan's form of dementia leads to progressive changes in personality, decision-making, behaviour, language and mood.
She has experienced younger onset dementia, which is defined as dementia in anyone under the age of 65.
Dementia Australia says it can often go unnoticed and undiagnosed because it is not as common in people so young.
But this year, there are an estimated 27,800 Australians living with younger onset dementia.
In total, it is believed 459,000 people in Australia have the condition.
This coming week, September 21 to 27, is Dementia Action Week.
