Well, it has been a frantic few days, and between the conference presentations, activities, the Dementia Alliance International stand and various meetings, it has been especially busy. On top of that, there has been a bit of a frenetic pace on social media happening as well, as we have all been trying to keep those people with dementia who have been interested and not able to be here, updated! Of course, other friends have been enjoying the updates too, and if not, then hopefully just ignoring them, not feeling annoyed by it all!?
I’ve added an image of our stand in the Exhibition Hall, that many of you may have seen. I know my dear husband will not have been on social media, and as he helped me so much with organising the poster and flyers, thought he might be interested. The poster tittle “Not Just A Challenging Behaviour” was a big hit with many people, and I will add that when I get home as a downloadable PDF, as many have asked me for a copy of it.
It is over now, and many people have either left for home, or a holiday somewhere in Western Australia. I fly home tomorrow, and a few friends here with me are flying in too and staying until Wednesday. My dear girlfriend Jacinta is meeting us there on Sunday to meet them and join in the fun. We definitely deserve a few days of respite after working so hard this last week, and respite at my house in Adelaide will be so much more fun than in an Aged Care facility!!!
