This week I’ve got the most surreal week so far……
Monday: Channel 4 coming to the house to film for Channel 4 News (to be shown Friday evening)
Tuesday: meeting with NHS employers to discuss their plans for two Employer Toolkits. One is for employers to support employees with symptoms of dementia and the other to support those juggling work with caring for someone with dementia
Wednesday: working day but also deadline for an article for The Guardian newspaper
Thursday: London at the premier for Still Alice – meeting Julianne Moore for a chat and various reporters
Friday: just working – I think…
Saturday: filming me, Sarah and Gemma chatting round the kitchen table (obviously the one I’m looking forward to most:)))
If anyone had told me my diary was going to look like this a year ago I would have laughed very loudly. I suppose all the above have to come under the heading of ‘advantage of living with Alzheimer’s’. I’ll just try to take the opportunity to raise as much awareness of dementia as humanly possible in one week.
