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’re nearly there. But we really do need to try and raise the final amount – we’re about £3,700 short of our budget (updated 29/06/10). Filming starts next weekend with the first of our ‘stories’… Watch this space and if you haven’t pledged yet, please, please do!

There are a number of people we have spoken to over the last week who have said they would also like to pledge, so never ones to turn down some more help, we’re extending the deadline until 18th June! And of course, if you’re keeping an eye on this site and haven’t pledged yet, now’s the time to do so 😉

As you can see, we’re not far off now and the magic of the www is kicking in, so we are getting hits from other sites too – all good news!

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!
