May saw the launch of our Understanding Dementia project – which is designed to explain and promote the work of the dementia/Alzheimer’s charity SPECAL.

Our aim is to produce a number of informational and inspirational documentary-style films for training and promotion, where carers talk about their varied experiences and explain the benefits to carers of understanding and following SPECAL’s life enhancing, even life saving advice.

We need to raise a minimum of fifteen thousand pounds to make the documentary film, plus versions for training and promotion.

This is a small, underfunded but extremely important charity – their work is uniquely successful in the field of understanding and coping with dementia.

So, please have a look at the ‘about’ page and then go to the ‘pledge’ page to make your pledge.

We received an email yesterday with a very generous donation from Mumbys Homecare Support. Trevor Mumby has just finished the Train the Trainer course at SPECAL and will then be training all 75 of his staff who offer home based care for dementia sufferers – a very necessary service and a lifeline for carers. Marvellous that the SPECAL message will be taken into private homes on such a scale.  I have added their weblink- http://www.mumbys.com – to the Blogroll column on the right hand side of this website. Thank you Trevor :-))
