    ......and anyone else interested.

    Karen, you asked recently (and I can't remember where, hence the new thread) about becoming involved in training professionals.

    By co-incidence, there's an article in this month's Living with Dementia on just that subject.

    http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/site/scripts/documents_info.php?documentID=679&pageNumber=3

    CRAC dementia seems to cover the London area, but they are wanting to roll it out to other training centres, and there's an email address for more info.

    It sounds very similar to the scheme I'm involved with here, and I know Tina is also involved in training, so there may well be a scheme in Manchester -- for when you have more time!:)

    Did I say that? :D I was probably on some bandwagon or soapbox at the time!!!!!!:rolleyes:

    Thanks, Hazel ...... and yes I've already been in contact with Tina by PM and will be again (sorry, Tina - I promise to try not to be so scathing next time!!!!:rolleyes:) I know you are both doing wonderful jobs and I will support Tina as best I can with her challenging and 'championing' role in our local area.

    I have to say - just back from hospital again - that I haven't got one teensy-weensy grumble about mum's care (that's shocked you all!!!) ...... the staff are absolutely superb without exception. Considering she is not on a specialist dementia ward it is almost breathtaking. Makes we query - if these people can get it right, why can't everywhere else?... what are they doing that is so good? Is it training/recruitment policy, simply a matter of staffing levels etc etc ... ? You know I'm the first to jump up and down shouting when I think things are wrong - but it's nice to be able to witness things going right and try to learn from that too. :)

    Love Karen, x

    I'd say training, every time, Karen.

    Glad they're getting it right, it makes such a difference.

    Love,
