EASE DEMENTIA …. GATHER YOUR PAST…. LIVE THE PRESENT …. EMBRACE THE FUTURE

UNBOX THOSE MEMORIES

MEMORIES ARE EASY TO UNBOX IF THEY HAVE A VISUAL OR ACTUAL PHYSICAL AID TO ASSIST …

I AM NOT A DOCTOR AS THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW ME WILL BE AWARE BUT MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE ONSET OF DEMENTIA IS THAT IT CAN BE DELAYED   , HALTED OR AIDED BY MEMORIES..

WE ALL KNOW THAT FORGETFULNESS IS SOMETHING FROM WHICH WE ALL SUFFER FROM TIME TO TIME …. WHERE DID I PUT MY KEYS ? BEING ONE OF MY FAVOURITE TAGLINES ….

IF WE HAVE THINGS AROUND US TO FAMILIARISE OURSELVES OF WHAT WE ARE COMFORTABLE WITH AND HAVE BEEN COMFORTABLE WITH IN THE PAST WE ARE GATHERING ITEMS ALONG THE WAY TO HELP US WITH BOTH OUR LONG TERM AND SHORT TERM MEMORY.

GONE ARE THE DAYS WHEN THE FAMILY PHOTO ALBUM COMES OUT AND YOUR FAMILY RIDICULE YOU FOR THE WAY YOU LOOK AND PORTRAY YOURSELF IN…

WELLINGBOROUGH ZOO NORTHANTS JOHN STEVENS

UNBOX THOSE MEMORIES

new april 14th 014.jpg

DELVING DEEPER INTO THE BOX WE DISCOVER WELLINGBOROUGH ZOO IN NORTHAMPTONSHIRE…

THIS ZOO WAS  OPENED BY JOHN STEVENS AND HIS WIFE IN 1943 … THIS WAS OF COURSE DURING THE 2ND WORLD WAR YEARS AND UNUSUAL FOR A NEW VENTURE TO BEGIN.

THE ZOO CHANGED HANDS TWICE MORE DURING ITS LIFETIME…. REGRETTABLY IT CLOSED DOWN IN 1970 IN A SOMEWHAT SCANDLE AS THE ANIMALS WERE SEEMINGLY NEGLECTED BY THE LAST OWNER

THERE IS MUCH MORE TO BE SAID AND WRITTEN ABOUT THIS ZOO..

SHOULD ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR HAVE ANY FURTHER LITERATURE ABOUT THIS ZOO OR ITS OTHER PROPRIETORS I WOULD BE HAPPY TO HEAR FROM YOU…. FOR EXAMPLE THE SECOND OWNERS A MISS SUTCH AND A MISS SMITH  WHO WERE THEY AND WHERE DID THEY GO TO ?  MYSTERIES TO BE SOLVED

THE FAST FOOD REFUND

mcd ice cream.jpgNOW I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I HAVE TO SHARE AN ‘EVENT’ THAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY…. IT HAS MADE A FEW PEOPLE CHUCKLE THAT I HAVE ALREADY TOLD …. SO I HAVE DECIDED TO RELAY THE STORY.

YESTERDAY AFTERNOON MY WIFE AND I DECIDED THAT WE FANCIED AN ICE CREAM SUNDAE FROM MCDONALDS….    NOW WE ARRIVED AT THE BUSIEST MCDONALDS CAR PARK EVER AND FOUGHT  FOR OUR PLACE TO PARK .. WE ENTERED THE RESTAURANT AND HAD  TO STAND BEHIND ABOUT  10 PEOPLE THAT WERE ALREADY QUEUING … BUT WE WERE SO HOT THAT WE DECIDED IT WOULD BE WORTH IT ….. FINALLY WE REACHED THE FRONT OF THE QUEUE OUR SUNDAE ONLY MOMENTS AWAY NOW…. MOUTHS SALIVATING AT THE THOUGHT OF OUR SMOOTH TOFFEE ICE CREAM SUNDAE MELTING IN OUR MOUTHS … OH AND THE STICKY TOFFEE DRIBBLING DOWN MY CHIN…… COS IT ALWAYS DOES…. I JUST CANNOT SEEM TO FIND MY MOUTH….

ANYWAY WE PAID WITH A LOAD OF LOOSE CHANGE AND WAITED EXPECTANTLY ….. THE TILL OPERATOR RETURNED TO REVEAL ……….   NO SHAKES OR ICE CREAMS AS OUR MACHINE HAS JUST BROKEN DOWN …….  WE LOOKED AT EACH OTHER THE TILL OPERATOR LOOKED AT US………… NOW WHAT ????????    WELL I COULD GIVE YOU A REFUND  SAID THE TILL OPERATOR……….

SO THAT WAS THAT NO ICE CREAM AND APPARENTLY ONE OF THE WORLDS FIRST TO GET A REFUND IN A MCDONALDS , ACCORDING TO THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN LAUGHING AT ME…… AT LEAST HE DID NOT GIVE US BACK ALL LOOSE CHANGE

SAD SAD TALE AND I DID NOT GET MY ICE CREAM SUNDAE 😦

DEMENTIA AND THE HEATWAVE

UNBOXING FROM THE MEMORIES TODAY … MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE INTENSE HEATWAVE WE ARE CURRENTLY  EXPERIENCING HERE IN THE UK

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT IN MY PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCE MY LOVED ONE IS VERY BADLY AFFECTED BY THE EXTREME HEAT….. MEMORY LOSS , DEMENTIA AND ALZHEIMERS IN MY OPINION ARE DEEPLY AFFECTED BY THE EXTREME TEMPERATURE….. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR LOVED ONES  TO SIT OUT AND ‘WORSHIP’ THE SUN AS IT AFFECTS THE MIND AND CAUSES HEAD  ‘PALPITATIONS ‘ A KIND OF THROBBING IN THE HEAD

 

BE WISE KEEP YOUR LOVED ONES IN  SHADE OR WITH A FAN IF POSSIBLE

HERE ENDETH THIS POST  KEEP YOUR LOVED ONES SAFE

DEMENTIA AS A POLITICAL PAWN

UNBOXING FROM MY MEMORIES TODAY …. A VERY NEAR AND CLEAR MEMORY OF HOW DEMENTIA RECENTLY BECAME A POLITICAL PAWN DURING THE RECENT UK ELECTIONS.

UNWISELY THE CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT DECIDED THAT IT WOULD EFFECTIVELY BE TAKING THE HOMES OF THE ELDERLY IN ORDER TO PAY FOR THEIR WELFARE IN FUTURE YEARS…. SOMETHING I BELIEVE GOVERNMENTS HAVE BEEN DOING FOR MANY YEARS AND HOW IT HAD NOT REALLY HIT THE HEADLINES UNTIL NOW I WILL NEVER KNOW…. ANYWAY THIS EFFECTIVE ‘TAX ‘ WAS CRUELLY LABELLED “DEMENTIA  TAX” BY THE PRESS AND CONSERVATIVE OPPOSITION…. TO CARRY SUCH A LABEL WAS INSENSITIVE AND DOWNRIGHT DEROGATORY TO THOSE OF OUR LOVED ONES THAT SUFFER FROM DEMENTIA OR ALZHEIMERS ….

PEOPLE , THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN , SHOULD NOT BE BEING USED AS POLITICAL PAWNS WITH THE  IDEA OF GETTING ‘ONE OVER’ YOUR OPPOSITION PARTY..

SO CAN THE PRESS AND POLITICAL PARTIES PLEASE CHOOSE THEIR WORDS MORE WISELY IN THE FUTURE AS NAMING IT AFTER  THIS HORRIBLE DISEASE IS MOST CRUEL

HERE ENDETH MY LATEST POST

DEMENTIA SHOULD NOT BE A WAY OF LEGALISING MURDER

UNBOXING FROM THE MEMORY TODAY…. LEGALISED MURDER OR MANSLAUGHTER…. IN MY OPINION A LIFE TAKEN BY ANOTHER SHOULD BE CLASSED AS MURDER WHETHER IT WAS INTENTIONAL OR NOT.

IN THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS I HAVE READ ABOUT A TRAGIC CASESWHERE ONE PARTNER HAS DEMENTIA AND BECAUSE THEY BOTH FEARED THAT THEY WERE GOING TO BE SEPARATED AND PLACED INTO  DIFFERENT NURSING HOMES THE HUSBAND SMOTHERED HIS WIFE AND THEN CONFESSED TO THE POLICE WHAT HE HAD DONE.

HE WAS ARRESTED AND HAD A TRIAL AND ESCAPED A JAIL SENTENCE BECAUSE OF THE SUFFERING THAT HE HAD ALREADY ENDURED .

HOW WAS IT PROVEN THAT HIS WIFE WANTED HIM TO KILL HER ? AFTER ALL SHE HAD DEMENTIA AND WAS NO LONGER EVEN ALIVE TO CONFIRM HIS VERSION OF EVENTS…

I THINK OUR LOVED ONES HAVE A RIGHT TO LIFE EVEN IF THEY DO SUFFER FROM DEMENTIA OR ALZHEIMERS IT SHOULD NOT BE UP TO OTHERS TO DECIDE THEIR FATE AND WIPE THEM OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH..

DEMENTIA SHOULD NOT BE A WAY OF LEGALISING MURDER.

DEMENTIA AND THE PHONE CREDIT

UNBOXING FROM THE MEMORIES TODAY IS HOW CONFUSING PHONE CREDIT IS FOR THOSE THAT SUFFER FROM DEMENTIA.

 

NOW FOR THOSE WITH GOOD OLD PAY AS YOU GO MONTHLY TOP UPS MAY KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT .

EVERY TIME YOU SEND A TEXT YOU GET A MESSAGE UP ON YOUR SCREEN TO ADVISE YOU WHAT YOUR CREDIT BALANCE IS LEFT ON YOUR  ACCOUNT …. WHAT IT FAILS TO TELL YOU IS THAT IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR A MONTHS TOP UP YOU ARE MORE THAN LIKELY STILL WITHIN YOUR AGREED TARRIFF.

SO PUT YOURSELF IN THE SHOES OF SOMEONE WITH MEMORY LOSS SUCH AS ALZHEIMERS OR DEMENTIA. EVERY TIME YOUR PHONE TELLS YOU YOU ARE RUNNING LOW ON CREDIT WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ?  YOU ARE EITHER GOING TO  BUY MORE PHONE CREDIT OR  AT LEAST ASK SOMEONE ELSE TO GET IF FOR YOU..

SO WHAT HAPPENS IS  IS THAT YOUR MOBILE PHONE NETWORK IS THAT EXTRA £10 OR SO BETTER OFF AND TIMES THAT BY THE AMOUNT OF DEMENTIA SUFFERERS WHO GET CONFUSED BY THIS MESSAGE THIS SOON ADDS UP

SO BEWARE AND WATCH OUT FOR YOUR LOVED ONES THAT  HAVE PAY AS YOU GO MOBILES …. THEY COULD BE PAYING OUT FOR SOMETHING THEY DO NOT NEED

 

HERE ENDETH THIS MESSAGE
