dementia week

    It's that time of year again, 'Time for a Cuppa Week' in aid of Dementia UK from 1st - 8th March.

    The amazing support from tea party hosts has meant that 1,000 more families now receive care and support from an Admiral Nurse, helping family carers and people with dementia to live positive and fulfilling lives.

    Join them on 1st to 8th March 2015, and make Time for a Cuppa.

    They want to help change the lives of thousands more people affected by dementia in 2015.

    By popping the kettle on and making Time for a Cuppa, you really will be making a difference. You will take us one step closer to making Admiral Nurses available for everyone who needs one.

    The book of everyone

    The Book of Everyone is a unique gift for that special person. My Dad was 90 in January and I spent hours and hours looking on the internet for something different, and stumbled upon this fantastic book.

    Its, 'A glorious celebration of any individual from 1-101 years old; beautifully personalised and perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, or just because they're special and deserve it. It's fast to make and free to preview.
    Each book is filled with amazing personalised facts, wonderful statistics and all told through a nostalgic glance back to the world the person was born into. You can personalise further with your own touches such as photos and comments'.

    It's beautifully presented and Dad was quite overwhelmed when he received this gift. I cannot recommend it enough as something very personal and special for a very special occasion.
