On the 5th Day of Christmas what YOU can do for US…..

I’ve been asking playmates up and down the country….

What simple, practical, cheap tips do you have for OTHERS to help make it easier for YOU to be involved in projects, meetings and events?”

So today sees the  Number 5 window being opened…….

”Send us an Itinerary of what we’re doing when including travel arrangements..”

Everyone likes to know what they’re doing. For us, it’s vital that everything is planned so we feel safe and organised. I can spend hours writing out my journey plan but now get the numbers muddled, so if someone has done it for me it makes it even simpler. Others find the workings out even more difficult, particularly if there are changes to be made, so help all you can….but try and get everything on one size A4 sheet..

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.
