Sometimes its nice that this awful condition can create moments of joy and laughter
Mark telephoned me the other day. He was in Central London, surrounded by Tourists and people busily going about their business in such a rush like there is no tomorrow. He was distressed, said he was lost and his Carer had abandoned him. Then I had a call from his Day Care centre to break the news to me that they had lost him! I told them not to worry I had dealt with the problem and we would be hearing something shortly.
I had said to Mark "now don't panic just see if you can find a rather good looking young Policeman. You know you like a uniform! Go and tell him you are lost and your Carer has disappeared and you need to go to Police Station"
An hour later the Day Care Centre get a call to collect him from Police Station. He then comes bounding home full of all his news. He has had the best field trip of any of the Day Centre clients that day. He found lovely and rather cute Policeman called Andy and he saw lots of others at Charing Cross Police Station and they chatted about all sorts of things.
I knew he would come up trumps!!! Bless him
