Communication and dementia

The only way forward to finish writing a blog today is to write freestyle, in the manner of NaNoWriMo, no judgement, no fear, no set plan, although I will try to edit it before I publish it.  Thanks to the intelligence of the computer, at least I have help. Looking in my office, it seems…

A bright idea…

“Just do 10 minutes if you don’t feel like training and you will find you rarely only do the 10 minutes” Apply this to anything you find difficulty doing, and I’m sure it will work. You will find yourself doing more than the 10 minutes, and get some of those tedious jobs [like tidying my…
