I think I need the course as another line of defence against all the misunderstanding around. I spoke to someone yesterday, a thoughtful person, she had no idea that Dementia is not one illness. I explained the differerences and needs simply. I think theory is a bit like a dictionary it provides the words but not great novels or poetry. I winced at the thought of the next course title too, my husband is like many, he was strong, fit, clever, adaptable, adventurous. However it it helps to combat the climate for one cap fits all, points out the dangers it could be useful to all us Warriors against the illness. In the sixties we knew a very very old wisened, some said he was 90, he still did hedging and ditching. He was so sunburned his skin was like leather, he smoked Churchmans Old Shag, one whiff had the rest of us choking. What would health advisors say to that!
