Hello there I attended the funeral of our wonderful Dementia Support Worker yesterday who died suddenly a couple of weeks ago. I had wanted to post earlier but didn't want to intrude on the families grief. I knew of her a little through work but then got in contact with her when Dad was diagnosed with AZ maybe with Lewy Bodies earlier this year.She came to see me at home and listened to what I had to say, what was happening with Dad and one of my siblings( you will know what I mean by that) .She was very practical, down to earth, knowledgeable, human (told me not to worry about the dust), kind ,compassionate, funny, a force to be reckoned with and liked a beer. I last saw her at a carers meeting a few weeks ago where I talked briefly about the latest things happening with Dad and on a positive note- the Memory walk I did in October.She said email me to arrange another meeting and gave me a copy of the Carers guide book To think that was our last carers meeting with her... My heart goes out to her family, friends colleagues and all the people with Dememtia and their carers that she supported. She is a huge miss. Still feel a bit shocked and not sure why.
