......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!
