The thought of speaking on the radio was a daunting prospect. With phonic dyslexia, I am known to stumble over words and even make some up! However, encouragement from friends, self coaching and putting people with dementia at the forefront of my mind. I did it! iPlayer,Ê BBC Radio Shropshire approx 1hr 14min into the show Thursday 27 Sept. May need to explore a little .Ê

A few tears shed

19/Sep/2012

A busy, emotionalÊand fascinating day. SaturdayÕs rehearsal workshop, meeting the film crew and cast went very well indeed. ÊI presented each character in the film and a little of their history. It was great to see how others make a living. ÊTwo of the cast had loved ones who were experiencing dementia so it was dear to their hearts- there were a few tears shed.

Meeting the cast

11/Sep/2012

This Saturday the Film Production Company are putting on a workshop for the cast and crew. We will be having team building exercises and running through the script. I will be introducing the cast to the characters, who they were, and their experience of dementia. I am very excited as it is really taking shape, becoming a reality.

Sunday 26 August. Sun is Shining

26/Aug/2012

Woke up this morning, logged in to discover another supporter. We are now 22% funded and 48 days left.

I have been working on the Film's learning points. These are the small interactions and signals that give a positive message to the individual. They express warmth and feeling, conveying the message, you are important to me. I am listening. I want to understand.

This is the start of the therapeutic relationship. Julia
