What’s happening today?

13th June 2023 – Tuesday

It’s a beautiful sunny day in Germany…I have been here for almost 2 weeks as my daughter has just had a baby and lives in a very quiet little town just a few metres from the forest..so different to Malta.

However, my thoughts are always with all those who live with dementia on a daily basis..and all their families. Tomorrow we will be holding yet another online session of ‘Reaching Hands’ for all relatives of people with dementia, whereever you may be. Some of you live abroad, some in Malta, some in Gozo..distance makes no difference..so too here we find people living with dementia..just a few roads away there is an independent living home for seniors..I often think about those who live there and what their future holds..we meet some of them as we walk past.

Everyone says good morning to you even if you don’t know them..that is the difference between a city (like the whole of Malta) and a small town in the countryside..however, we can all do this wherever we are..it makes our day happier to know that others are kind to us.

Some of of you may not know, but I am now working with the MDS thanks to a very kind benefactor who sponsored me..there are wonderful people in this world! I left my job of 21 years and am now totally dedicated to all of you out there…please do not leave me alone..communicate with me..and let me know how you feel today..sadness and loneliness are a terrible thing..we have to face our burdens and carry them every day..but we do not have to do that alone..

Put a smile on your face and you will feel better inside..God bless you xx

Hi, My name is Anne and I am an ex carer and looked after my mother, along with my dad, for 12 years. She had Alzheimer’s and Lewy body disease. From a very active, confident person, she became fully dependant on others. It was very hard for her and also for us, her family.

My mother passed away in 2012 and today I try to help others going through the same experience. I know how desperate you can feel when faced with this kind of situation and would love to be able to help you. Please do reach out to us and also to me.

You can call me on 99451625 or email info@maltadementiasociety.org.mt.
