Hi everyone I will move this to the Tea Room in due course but am posting it here as this is where most people come, first of all. For Valentine's Day, The Alzheimer's Society is producing a new booklet, called "Love is Forever", which features eight couples where one partner has Alzheimer's. The booklet is really well produced and Norman and I, with our partners, are two of the couples who agreed to take part. After Valentine's Day, I believe the booklet will be used as a standard handout, though someone from the Society will no doubt confirm that. When the Press Release for the booklet went out this week, The "This Morning" program on ITV contacted the AS and asked if they could include someone from the booklet on their Valentine's Day programme. I have agreed to take part, and so has Angela [I don't think this Angela posts on TP], who is also featured in the booklet. The programme goes out between 1030 and 1230 next Monday, 14th February. Speaking for myself, I have never been on live [or any other ] TV before, so am trembling at the thought. However, it is an opportunity to voice at least some of the feelings of a carer, and for the audience to see some of the challenges we all face. I am permitting them to film Jan and me as we do our usual crawling hour, on Friday. I have also made available photographs of us from the past 40 years. They are also filming Angela and her husband. The prime reason for the programme is to show that love overcomes even the challenges of dementia, so there won't be the opportunity to beat the drum over the huge issues of getting help for care. I'll do my best to get TP mentioned somewhere though! You will find the booklet featured at http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/News_and_Campaigns/News/050208love.htm My huge thanks go to the AS for such a fantastic idea and opportunity.
