I am very happy to say we have added two more talks in Partnership with the wonderful team from NHSaaa  .August 11th at Crosshouse Hospital and August 15th Ayr hospital 

We have just finished  a great 8 talk tour together over June and Jully speaking to over 400 staff across both hospitals and receiving 234 " Make a difference " pledges you can read more about the 8 previous talks HERE 

Really looking forward to the new talks, working again with the great team and meeting more staff from across NHSaaa 

A BIG thank you to Derek ,Janice and all the Team 


The 'You Can Make a Difference' > Campaign which was launched by Dementia Carer Voices in February of this year has now added new talks to the tour with NHS Ayrshire and Arran. >The campaign asks people to reflect on carer’s personal stories and experiences, and later make a pledge based on one key message or action that they will take away and apply to their everyday practice to make a difference.
The pledges > highlight the positive steps we can all take to make a difference for people affected by dementia through focusing on the person rather than the condition and taking time to listen to and focus on what is important to people with dementia and their carers.

Tommy Whitelaw, Dementia Carer Voices Project Engagement Lead said
“This is an important opportunity to spread the message that we can all make a difference in our own way. Carers so often tell us that a little bit of time, listening and understanding can make an unimaginable difference during what can be a very difficult and lonely journey.”
