I presented to a fabulous caring audience today that were mainly from the aged care sector and they totally inspired me. I went through so many emotions and almost ‘lost it’ and so did they (many told me afterwards, they were a bit teary ) but you could feel the ‘need for change’ in dementia care within the room.
I was totally cooked afterwards and almost choked on my pitta bread lunch, but was so worth it. Dad having multiple falls at the nursing home lately and me being tired certainly tested me today, but I now look forward to a rest in Melbourne with son Max for our boy’s weekend.
Thank you to the ‘Dementia Whisperers’ and DBMAS/Alzheimer’s Australia for allowing me to to tell our family story to try and make a difference. Keep on caring!
