Dementia Leader of the Year 2015

Very humbled and proud to be announced at the International Dementia Awards in Birmingham UK, as the Dementia Leader of the Year at the UK Dementia Congress 2015 conference. There have been loads of tweeps out there congratulating me, which is also how I found out; I have only posted three of them. Thank you to everyone for your congratulations, and support, and to whoever it was that nominated me.

    • Thanks Christine… perhaps your husband would like to join one of our online support groups – have a look here http://www.infodai.org – you would just need to link him up on a computer, or even his phone or an iPad? We welcome new members, and find they usually are very nervous to start with, and by the end of their first group, have found their voice, and are having fun…

  3. How lovely that you were awarded in Birmingham just down the road from Coventry my birthplace. Your work continues to make such a difference to my approach to being a Care Partner. Sincere thanks for your work and cyber friendship.
