Dementia friendly pharmacy

Next Monday, April 28th between 1.30pm and 3.30pm  will see the opening of the WORLD`S VERY FIRST Purple Angel Dementia Drop in Centre!!!! I have to admit being quite tearful as i write this as i am so very proud of how FAR we have all come!! We are hoping to get the BBC there and also local papers, a HUGE thank you has to go to Day Lewis Pharmacy for helping and allowing us to do this every Monday afternoon.

This will be a Drop In Centre like no other as because of the very busy nature of the shop and the amount of footfall which passes through  we will be hoping to catch many that usually fall through the net, this is why its SO UNIQUE!!!!

So exciting and please remember my friends

14 years as an Alzheimer's caregiver, then became Homeless.
She spent a large part of her life in fear, panic attacks, and agoraphobia, until she learned, change your thought, change your life.
She knows life can change in the blink of an eye. ‘You think you know where you are headed, then POW you're knocked off that solid piece of ground you thought you were on.’
She worked in health care: assisted living, adult day care, and volunteered for Alzheimer’s support groups. Now she writes, sharing what she’s learned, hoping to help others.
