    What a lovely post Mary. It can`t get much better than that. :)
     
  3. Thank you so much for posting this, Sylvia. This is a lot of what I needed. Sadly I think I've broken about half of the rules, at one time or another. :(

  6. Not yet - must have another shot at it, having got the permission! After various to-and-fro communications, she published a page I wrote about AZ in general (as counterblast to the silly jokey piece the previous month) in which I gave contact info for AS and the local (general) carers group. Last time I spoke to my contact at the carers group she said they'd had someone ring to get support who'd read about it in our village parish mag, so I felt very pleased about that! Pam

    Thank you Sylvia - I saw it a while ago and thought how useful it would be but didn't have time to print it, then of course forgot!! It answers some questions but of course not all, however those usually come from TP members anyway. So have now printed it off and will give copies to family, friends etc. Many thanks. Take care.

    This is VERY helpful - bit interestingly, didn't come up at all when I was searching the forums for advice on how to handle repetitions! This is just the sort of thing I was looking for.

    Sorry to be repeptitive;) but I did ask if this thread can be stickied a while back, - don't know who's responsible to sticky something or if anyone can but I wouldn't know how to do it.

    Perhaps one of the moderators can.

    Thanks
    Sue

    Unfortunately, we have discovered that having a lot of stickies makes it very difficult for new users to find their way around the forum (the useability testing we conducted highlighted this problem). That's why we have progressively reduced the number of stickies in favour of providing the links in a single stickied thread.

    Specifically this thread Really Useful Resources has a number of different, well, really useful resources :))) contained within it, including this one.

    I printed this a while back and have it in my activity folder. It is useful to have available to show to staff members in the care homes, especially the younger ones.
