It helped me make sense of many things

It helped me make sense of many things with Mum – the shuffling feet, the not hearing/making sense of things particularly – and I am sure I will be able to help her more having done the course. Yesterday afternoon when I went in to see her I sat opposite Mum (instead of beside her, which is how the chairs are arranged) and was rewarded with her lovely smile which can light up a room, yet I haven’t seen in quite a while.


An important experience

I was invited to complete the Virtual Dementia Tour by the volunteers from the Tenterden Dementia Friendly Community. The experience was profoundly moving and informative. It doesn’t matter if you know someone living with dementia, you work in the care sector or not. Completing the tour will make everyone more understanding of how little changes in their own behaviour can make a huge positive impact within the community.
