@bethyb1886 @suzysopenheart @NicolaP321 @WendyPMitchell @chris40781 @george_rook @TommyTommytee18 @Innov_Dementia @3NDWG Fairy tales!
No one’s life is a fairy tail even without dementia
Creating a film around dementia is difficult
Unfortunately we can not please everyone who watches

Fabulous to see you @george_rook & @awad_gina for the @rcpsychCCQI MSNAP Advisory Group Meeting
@bethyb1886 @AlzDisInt @PaolaBarbarino @PlaylistforLife @dementiacentre @uk_beyondwords @NoBarriersHere @DementiaLD Thank you so much dear friend, much appreciated xx
@neilmcrowther @alzscot I remember someone asking me once ‘How is your burden?’
They meant my Mum who lived with dementia.
She was so much more than that.
She was my Mum and we always lived with hope. @WendyPMitchell @GailGre59728262 @bethyb1886 @NicolaP321

It’s World Alzheimers Day
We chatted all things dementia @piponthecommons @bethyb1886 @DementiaUK @Training2careUK #AdmiralNurses you get a mention
On World Alzheimer's Day 2023, we explore supporting people with dementia and a learning disability to live their best lives. Thanks to Beth Britton and our Health Team for their insights.
Despite being on the rise, #dementia is not an inevitable part of ageing. In this new #blog @bethyb1886 explores dementia, your risk of developing it, and how to reduce that risk

This #WorldAlzheimersDay, it is with great pleasure that we award @TaylorLeenetjie the 2023 Richard Taylor Memorial Advocates Award.
Read more about how Eileen has contributed to DAI and the wider dementia community on our blog: https://dementiaallianceinternational.org/blog/2023-richard-taylor-award-goes-to-eileen-taylor
Important words 👇...we must therefore be mindful in our work in health & social care of how we present ourselves to those in our care. Every interaction has the potential for great impact, causing people to feel loved or to feel burdensome. #dementia
🎵 Happy National Playlist Day! 🎶 Did you know that music can be a powerful tool when caring for someone with dementia? It not only brings joy to caregivers but also helps reconnect with those living with dementia 🎧💙 #NationalPlaylistDay

Thank you Beth 🙏
@bethyb1886 @Crouchendtiger7 Indeed! And likewise.
I’m doing a #WhoseShoes project re health inequalities in maternity with SW London at the moment.
I just had a ☎️ & someone said “Whose Shoes goes back a long way, doesn’t it? – I remember the work you did around dementia care!” #DementiaChallengers #MatExp
Another busy week is in full swing, but there is always time to reflect on what's been before...
I've had so much lovely feedback after @WendyPMitchell was a guest for one of my #carehome staff meetings last week. I'll say it AGAIN - you cannot beat #livedexperience in learning
🎉 Let's celebrate!
This week marks Professional Care Workers' Week, and we're taking a moment to express our thanks to all the incredible care workers nationwide. You truly are the best! 🙌
