Good morning, as I sit here at my desk not aching too much after completing a 5.5 mile walk yesterday in aid of Dementia Care, here in the UK. I also rode to the event which is a 4 mile round trip!
One of the things that has always appealed to me has been to be able to give back to society. Now giving back to society does not always mean in a monetary way, you can give your time, raise money through a charity event, or raise awareness in however way you can. It can be rewarding to give back to the community who has supported you in some way shape or form. Most people dont have the spare money or time to be able to give back to society, this is why I love network marketing because it gives you the additional income that is expendable. I gave up my gym time for this walk, but did I miss the gym, no, instead of a workout I did a walk, met so many peope who have had the challenge of living through and are still going through the journey of a relative with dementia, it truly was delightful to have completed this walk in my mother’s memory and for those all ar
It is more blessed to give than to receive – Acts 20.35
Dementia has a special place in my heart, because my mother suffered from ‘vascular dementia’ and sadly passed away in 2016. I know first hand what it is like to live with Dementia and how it affects those around you, including the one you love who has the illness.
Dementia affects everyone in the family, even close friends. It is a horrible illness and there are many types of illnesses associated with Dementia which you can see below.
If you have been affected and are beginning to go through the journey of Dementia you can get more advice from this site:
