Wow - sounds fantastic! Wishing you the very best of luck. Izzy x
It will be a long hard haul Danny, but you will get there in the end. You are doing brilliantly getting the right people interested and it is wonderful that you are reinvesting future profits into the company.
When I win that jackpot I will give you a hefty financial boost and come and work for you for nothing!
Though by that time you will no doubt have a flourishing business with all Cornwall flocking to your doors.
I really do wish you all the best in your worthy endeavours xx
Putting people first
Sounds as though you've cracked it, Angel!
I'll donate my labour for free - b & b in the local 'hostelry' PAID FOR BY ME, and that's for the first month ONLY!!
Brilliant thinking, Angel! Well done.
PS. Hope you don't mind the way I adapted your original post. The message is still the same, just mathematically adjusted. 1 + 1 = 2 and sounds as though you've got far more than 2 on board so far. Great news.
Hi Vonny,Izzy.Have you read the starfish poem
I realise that no one person can change the world but we all can make it better for a few!
JPG1,believe it or not,you have helped me alot and if you can find the correct link to the starfish poem!!!!!!
Here it is, looks identical to the link you posted!
What a wonderful piece, and you will save lots of starfish Danny xx
There are many Starfish poems/stories/anecdotes, Angel.
But the simple twinkle twinkle one is a favourite:
and, an alternative:
The message is the same .... make a difference.
But you may have had something else in mind, so sorry if mine don't quite fit the bill!
Danny some years ago i also looked into turning my home into a carers drop in centre, then an ad / carers holiday centre, my kids thought i had lost the plot, but i thought i could do this , untill i looked into staffing , insurance etc and realised i did not have the skill or finances to make this work, just hope you can make this happen, and i have an inkling you will, and make such a difference to many. best wishes for your venture pam
Another link, for anyone who's perhaps not heard of the Starfish principle, or of Margaret Mead:
Margaret Mead: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
There are so many stories/tales, poems and anecdotes out there, just waiting to be found and considered by all those "in charge of care" who could do well to read and ponder.
Had we better ask for autographs now?????
Fabulously well done! Keep us posted as to how it all goes (If we don't see you on telly first! )
Love, Karen, x
Saying 'Well Done' hardly comes close to what needs to be said for someone doing such an inspirational thing.
Now ..... how to get my Dad down to Cornwall!
I do hope you are keeping a diary of what you are doing to achieve what you are? It just might be a blue-print for what can be done around the country? It would certainly be a book I would buy
Take care ... one star-fish at a time
Hi everyone,another quick update.
We had our first gentleman around yesterday,referred to us by a CPN and funded by them.
We went to pick the man up with his wife to come and have a look around and a coffee etc.
One hour later the man was still sat in the car!!!!!!
I had a lovely chat with his wife whilst my manager shared a cup of tea in the car!!!
He waved bye to us and said he would come back next week!!
All the best laid plans!!!
Oh Danny - glad you had an easy case to cut your teeth on! At least it was a nice bright spring day, suitable for al fresco refreshments
Danny, I don't suppose you could get that lady who burnt her flat down yesterday to drive this gentleman next time - he might then be only too pleased to get out of the car quicker than quick!! (Sorry! Not meant to be anything other than a light-hearted comment on the situation.)
I have to hand it to you all,you really keep my spirits up
JPG1,you are so funny,I know that this is serious stuff and your point is well and truly understood.
Meetin with Danny
Hi Guys Just got back from my first meeting with Danny this afternoon
I initially went over for a coffee and a quick chat ended up staying for over two hours it was great meeting with a T.P member in person.
I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon sorry Danny I forgot your colleagues christen name already I’m sure she will forgive me, I’m also sorry to both of you for taking up so much of your valuable time however it was so nice to be able to talk to two people who were prepared to listen to the views of a person with adementia diagnoses and how they feel in them selves copes with that illness ok most of us have spent hours having appointments with our GP’s or hospital Consultants during consultations , totally different having two young females prepared to ask a question and sit and listen to you rabbit on ( just like I am now )
so to you both thank you for being so kind and understanding this after noon
I wish you all the success for Monday
Danny there is a saying ( I wish you everything I wish myself )
cheers Tony xx
Tony,thankyou for taking the time to talk to us,myself and Becky are truly grateful for the insight you gave to us today.
Just wanted to wish you well, you are more than welcome on this site as far as I am concerned... though it makes me envious of all the people who will come to your imaginative centre as it sounds like a rare gem that I've never (yet) found for my Mum. The new status also is progress - putting back profit tallies much better with caring. Good luck...
Danny, if anyone from TP has ever actually said that to you, I think they are well & truly out-voted!
Please stick around; apart from anything else, we need people like you to off-set all the incompetent 'professionals' who we come across.
Danny, please don't find another forum. What you are doing is inspirational, and so important for the rest of us to see what can be done -- and how hard it is!
