I don't know if its my computer but have received this attachment upside down!  

Also, may I ask Laurence if you ever attend any of these events yourself?

Nope, it`s not your pc Maria.  Mine opened upside down as well!

In that case that should have been noticed and put up properly.  Otherwise, it shows lack of concern for a worthy cause.  As a full time carer myself, and as anyone else who is, would know what a hard job it is caring for a loved one who is unwell.  And, I would also like to receive an answer to my question, if possible.  It is very important that Estate Management have knowledge and understanding for carers, and anyone else who need support and help on our Estate.  

Unfortunately, from personal experience, that has not happened.  

Artizan St Library. Why is everything over there? My friend has had no help since her partners dementia diagnosis other than offers of literature. They need serious, practical help now. If the GP referred them to hospital and a diagnosis made why should they have to make contact with anyone? Should not the hospital and GP make contact with Social care. Should nothing happen because ' the lady who will visit' is on holiday.? People with dementia don't have a holiday. The carer/partner may be in shock too. They don't get a holiday. I am so angry. I have been asking around and all there is on offer are leaflets and a call this number.
The carer in question told me. ' I keep phoning people who say they will send literature or visit, but nothing happens'. It's an absolute disgrace at any age but over 80. Please it's not good enough.

I entirely agree Christine.  All we had were offers of literature too, plus an invite to a drop in event.  However, when I said it was proper support I needed because of the problems and stress the immense pressure  of personal issues was causing us, it was 'sorry to hear that', and goodbye.  I am a full time carer, yet I'm on virtually maximum medication for a psychological illness.  Yes, its not good enough.  

Is there anyone out there, including Estate Office management, who have compassion and understanding towards vulnerable people, and help them instead of making life more difficult than it already is?
