Carol Hargreaves, member of the European Working Group of People with Dementia, likes to keep busy

Thursday 25 April 2019

I must admit I have not had the best few weeks, but thank goodness I am feeling better. I know I have to adjust with this illness and staying busy is one of the things that helps. I was asked to meet a lovely lady as part of our buddy system, to help her settle in. I feel she will be great for the group (Scottish Dementia Working Group – SDWG). Others have done the same for new group members in the past and it is something we are proud to do. More members make us stronger. This week, I have been asked to do an interview with some new staff. I feel this is a privilege as it shows that people with this illness can be strong and make very serious decisions. I am also really looking forward to visiting the Emerald Isle (Ireland) to work with Helen. I will be travelling with Wendy from Dundee, which I know will be great, as I know she will be a great companion.
