Home again

We returned home again last night, from our holiday in Turkey, and I really enjoyed the experience.



Today however I had to do a presentation on Living with Lewy Body Dementia, to Trainee Nurses at my adopted University in Northumbria, a place which is Dementia Friendly.



I really enjoy working there are everyone is so interested in learning about this illness, but I confess the my wife and I totally forgot the we were doing this when we returned from holiday.



After a normal long journey, I struggle to do anything, at home the following day, but today I must have been on an adrenaline rush as I got on with the presentation even though I could hardly see the words I had written so time ago.



However once we got home I had enough time to grab a sandwich, and then I was flat out and dead to the world



I have one more presentation to do at Northumbria University tomorrow and another on Thursday, then on Friday I am off to London to attend a Primary Care "Clinical Studies Group" with DeNDRoN where we work with Doctors and Professors in the medical field.



So I confess that I am looking forward to the week end now.

  1. Hi Ken,

    On behalf of us all, a huge thank you for coming to talk to us today. It was a huge privilege to listen to your story and a most valuable experience. It has proved there is so much more we can learn from listening to those around us living with a diagnosis.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    Antonia, Student Nurse, Northumbria.
