Message to the youth of today

Yesterday's zoom meeting...

Yesterday's zoom meeting with about 25 teenagers who want to work in care went really well. It was a boisterous beginning as they are teenagers, after all, lol but soon settled down and within minutes you could have heard a pin drop

The great thing about this meeting was they had each all prepared a question to ask at the end, which was so thoughtful and doesn't usually happen, The questions were great but the one that sticks with me is when one asked how they could all help us with dementia ? my answer went like this.....

I said.....

"" You are the youth of today and the leaders of tomorrow, if you all take away what I have said today and share it, it will reduce the stigma surrounding this disease of dementia until eventually there will be none, you can teach all around, your families and eventually your own children so they will take it forever forward, please do this, that's all we ask.. ""

You could have heard the proverbial pin drop .........................
