VIDEO MESSAGE FROM ME
Hiya, please take a look at this as this is my reply to yesterdays press release by the Dept of Health which was headed “Transforming Lives” if you want to google it, i commened on it yesterday and promised a video, here it is xxxxx
ME AND THE PM
Well, here`s the proof that together we can really make a difference. After years of campaigning for more funding for research into this awful disease, (and PLEASE don’t let us forget all those who have fought long and hard before i was diagnosed) This was a meeting we had with the Prime Minister (I am to the left of him with hands clasped) just before he went on stage to announce that the funding into Alzheimer’s will go up to about 66million ££££££££££s !!!!!! It was a historic day in the Dementia world and one i was very proud to be asked to. Just before that i had been interviewed on stage by Angela Rippon who i have to say is one very nice lady. Please remember, the work doesn’t stop here as we discussed Dementia Friendly communities and how we can make all cities and towns ect a better place for people with this illness to live.
It was agreed with the PM (Can’t believe i am writing this) that we WILL NOT just put stickers up all around town/cities announcing that we are Dementia friendly unless some sort of Dementia Aware training is in place first. Do you remember in the 80s when town called themselves “Nuclear free? AS IF!! It was a fiasco and we don’t want to go down that route!”! So please my friends remember, this is just the beginning , but what a beginning, and please remember this is in memory of all those lost already to this disease and those living with itt now, THE FIGHT GOES ON !!!
Best wishes, Norrms and family xxxxxxxx
