As promised in my ebook (search Kirsty Elgar on Amazon to download) I wanted to write a list of all the people who have helped and supported both Nanny Jean and I on our journey with dementia. So here it is. If you have been missed off I do apologise, please let me know so I can rectify this, I had nearly 5 years worth of RT’s, comments, emails to go through!
So without further ado:The biggest thanks of course goes to my loving and supportive family mum, dad, sister, grandma for not letting me hit rock bottom and pushing me to follow my dreams, even when they seemed unachievable. And Nanny Jean for sharing her journey with me and through me for the world to see.
To Kate at unforgettable.org – Thankyou for wanting to share our story. It was a pleasure working with you 🙂
To the social workers and Admiral Nurses and the Carers who cared when I couldn’t anymore – Thankyou for doing the best for Nan and myself.
