I have had the great privilege to meet so many amazing, caring, inspiring people IN PERSON on my tour across the country on twitter via our Dementia Carer voices Blog and my own TommyOnTour blog.
I have been overwhelmed by the kindness of people and have had many emotional journeys home late at night from talks thinking back to all that happened each day; the people I have met,the pledges that have been made , the stories I have heard and the great initiatives so many people have shared.
There are far too many people to mention in person - this blog piece might never end if I tried!
For me caring is truly all about people and relationships - it’s always people who make the biggest difference of all. I have met so many amazing people and witnessed the greatest relationships of care over the last year.
Thank you for bringing a smile to my heart over the last 12 months, thank you for making such a difference to my life BUT more importantly thank you for the amazing pledges to make a difference for others.
Thank you from my heart and from my amazing team mates Irene, Laura and Sarah.
