    Hi there. I am studying Understanding Dementia MOCC with UTAS and have been truly inspired to find out more about dementia from both the ‘patient’s’ perspective and that of the primary care giver. I have just discovered your blog and have subscribed. I would like to wish you and your lovely wife all the very best! Kind regards Dx

    Hi Dinease. Thank you for your comment. I too was doing the course with UTAS until I had to have surgery to deal with my bleeding brain .(refer to blog entry in January). I would recommend Kate Swaffer’s blog if you haven’t already found it.
    I wish you all the best with your studies
