Three more wonderful opportunities…….

I get into trouble for announcing events before they’ve been publicised so was sure to check the web sites of the three I’m mentioning today to avoid a slapped wrist…….🙄

It never ceases to amaze me what wonderful opportunities have come my way since being diagnosed with dementia….and since my book came out, it’s opened up even more new and exciting adventures..

The first to tell you about is the Off The Shelf in Sheffield

I’ll be there on Saturday 13th October at 2pm. More details can be found on their web site:

The second is the East Riding Festival of Words. Didn’t have any excuse to refuse this one as it’s a village bus ride away!
I’m there on the 18th October at 2pm.

and how wonderful to see a banner flying on my own local town high street with a picture of my book – made me very happy ❤️

Finally a FREE event for anyone who lives anywhere near Hull or Beverley in Yorkshire and Humber. The Humber Recovery College announced it’s new season of free workshops and me and Cathryn Hart from Humber NHS Teaching Foundation Trust are running two workshops. ANYONE is able to attend – healthcare professional, family members, people with dementia or simply, anyone interested.

Our sessions are on Thursday 15th November 10-12 at Beverley Library and Thursday 17th January at Hull Library 10-12

A FREE Workshop to explore ways can live better with dementia and be better supported. Not everyday healthcare professionals have access to such a valuable resource……and FREE

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.
