Living, loving, laughing, learning

“People often say to themselves in life that they should avoid a variety of occupation, and, more particularly, be the less willing to enter upon new work the older they grow. But it is easy to talk, easy to give advice to oneself and others. To grow old is itself to enter upon a new business; all the circumstances change, and a man must either cease acting altogether, or willingly and consciously take over the new rôle.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The most informative site on understanding dementia. Regularly updated and packed with invaluable insights and resources from Gemma Jones, world expert in dementia. Its purpose is:

  • “to help promote good dementia care through providing information, newsletters and supportive educational / teaching materials.
  • to be an arena for innovations and ongoing developments in the new field of care-giving in dementia (or dementia care).
  • to highlight the less visible aspects of caring – the constant balancing and support required to link the ‘external requirements’ and ‘inner aspects’ of caring well.

At this site, all aspects of caring will be acknowledged – the frustrations and failures as well as the achievements and successes. Concepts, guiding principles, current research, anecdotes will be added to the site regularly via newsletters.”
