A recording I made in Keswick…….

According to the date at the end of this short video, I recorded it last August while I was on one of my jaunts to paradise. It was the lovely Nicky Taylor from Leeds Theatre who filmed it. She must have come to my B&B as I’m sat by my window with my lovely view, answering the questions. I’ve got a feeling we filmed it for a conference I wasn’t able to attend, but not sure which one…..

We also filmed me by the Lakeside and at my favourite spot of Friars Cragg…..so have a listen and enjoy my paradise on film……..

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.

  1. You will have done so very much to give hope and practical ideas to those people who got the same diagnosis . I have such respect for how you seek to live your life.

  2. Excellent wee video Wendy. Your appraisal of the professional’s approach at diagnosis was truly upfront and your explanation of a helpful, less clinical diagnostic comment was spot on. Everyone’s dementia is different with different needs, wishes and difficulties but each still has very much to offer from the good bits of their lives. Thoughtful conversations and getting to know the individual for who he / she is can enhance confidence so that quality of life can be maintained.xx🦋

  3. Thank you for sharing this video Wendy, it was so insightful and helpful to those with or without any form or dementia. I love your posts, don’t always comment (!) and I love The Lakes too. What a beautiful place Keswick is, and you have that wonderful view from your room!
