Facebook live event……

If you’re on Facebook, you may like to join and watch this event. Dementia Carers Count asked if I’d do a live event via Facebook…..now I must admit, I havn’t a scooby doo how this will work as I’ll be on zoom, but Rob, the techs man assures me it’ll be fine 🤣

I’l be talking for around 45 minutes and you can type in questions to ask me…apparently!

Here’s the link Rob sent me to promote the event


And here’s a piccie of the detail. So it’s on Friday 24th March at 12.30…

Hope some of you can make it….and don’t forget the cuppa! ☺️

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.

  1. Hi Wendy, I’ve just finished reading your second book (in less than 2 days). Thank you for such a beautifully written lesson in dementia. I’m a fairly new dementia adviser and took notes all the way through reading it and it will certainly improve the way I support the people I come into contact with. I look forward to your live event and will inform my colleagues that it is happening. Congratulations to you on all your amazing work, you are truly inspiring.
