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 :-))

Just got back from York meeting Peter, the GP we’re going to be interviewing for this – fascinating man who is spreading the SPECAL message to CPNs, carers, nursing homes and GPs and also setting up a research project to record the efficacy of the SPECAL method. He in turn introduced to a lovely lady who has been through the SPECAL course in order to help her Mum with dementia. She is now training others too….

We have had some amazingly generous donations come in today from people who had been passed this web-link from others – I can’t thank you all enough and we will put your money to very good use!

A long but happy day… *pours glass of red wine and slumps in chair* Cheers!
