Dementia Practice Group meeting, Stornoway 10th Nov 2015

I went to the Dementia Practice Group meeting today. It was brilliant to catch up with people working in the same field locally and to hear about triumphs and challenges in practice. We enjoyed a video link with two men from the Dementia Working Group for Scotland. They talked about the kinds of challenges and obstacles in everyday life and how dementia has brought new joy, such as the shared time together with people they really enjoy the company of, the joy of having children (now grown) calling every day and the rediscovered joy of walking. We had lots of chat with them afterwards and I was particularly interested in what we can do as a project to make our events as accessible and enjoyable as possible.
