I’ve ended up with a bit of a mad week this week…….I’m sure it wasn’t like that when I planned it but hey ho……
Tomorrow I’m in London as I’ve been asked to be on a discussion panel at Dementia Challenge 2015 – Defeating the Disease, at the Mermaid Conference Centre by the Thames – very excited. More can be found at:
My fellow panelists are:
Sarah Reed – Communications specialist; Madaleine Cooper-Ueki – Lead for ‘Circles of Support for People with dementia’ and Sarah Wilcox – CEO National Development Team for Inclusion.
Our brief is to discuss the Patients perspective – think I’ll have lots to say……….
There’s lots of eminent speakers so it should be a really good day.
I’ve found some new best friends to take with me – ear plugs! I prefer ro walk everywhere in London, mainly to avoid the tubes but also because you see so much more but London streets are so noisy. Traffic seems twice as noisy. However, I think the usual ear plugs that mould to the shape of your ear would be dangerous and block out too much noise but I found the ones below that simply dull the sound and take the edge of the intense noise that is so disorientating. They’ve had lots of road testing in York – I live on a main road so always lots of sirens etc – and they’ve proved to be a very good find…….and they’re quite cute looking too:)
Really hope the end of my week isn’t ruined by the train strike as the end of the week is the fun bit…………….if it went ahead it would seriously impact on the Alzheimers Show at Olympia and mean I can’t go visit friends for the weekend after the event on Friday – would be very sad…..
