The DEEP Network…….

Before the start of todays blog….my partner in writing, Anna Wharton has reminded me that she can send a copy of my book anywhere in the world 😳….there’s a possibility that Margaret Steiner may distribute for me in the US again, if any of you folk would like one? As with the calendars, just email me please. For anywhere else in the world you can order direct from Anna. Obviously they’ll be extra for postage, but you can always enquire on the link below

Or if any problems just contact me ☺️ Anyone that would like a signed copy from me, feel free to email me 😊

And so to todays blog…….

I’ve said many times how wonderful this Network is. For many of us, it’s been a life saver, that one word connecting people all around the country – Dementia. Our wonderful group at Minds and Voices is a member of the DEEP Network. All we ask, from ANY group, anywhere, is that you share our values. Those values of allowing people living with dementia a voice.

This year we’re celebrating our 10th birthday and my Amigo playmate, Dory talks on this film about the value of DEEP. I’ll be showing more of our films over the next few Fridays….so sit down with a cuppa and enjoy….

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia. 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.
