Amid all the chaos in the world right now, my mom turned 70. 
Though it totally sucks to be away from her, somehow I find comfort in knowing she is unaware of the nonsense, she’s safe, and will be happy to celebrate when the coast is clear, hopefully sooner than later. 
I posted a request for birthday messages less than a week ago and within 24-ish hours I had all these sweet videos. They came from near and far, from her best friends to those who will never meet her. My heart explodes with gratitude. ....
She would have never believed she would turn 70 in the late stages of young onset Alzheimer’s and be quarantined from visitors during a pandemic but she would also have never believed that all of you would go out of your way for her in the midst of a global crisis. ....
Love always wins.
....
Happy birthday, mama! I’ll be there soon! ❤️
....
Huge thanks to @revoxsocial for making this come to life so quickly. 🥳🥳🥳 ....
Another huge thanks to the girls taking care of her. We will never be able to repay you. ❤️

Hello everyone! We have reduced these beauties to £10 and FREE UK postage in order to support ourselves during this difficult time. Losing our business and having to start again plus consequences of Covid-19 has really knocked us for six. If you would like to help, and want something pretty too, then please do. It would mean the world.

Dad and Jacks came to visit yesterday. Less than a minute after Dad sat down, Arthur was up on the sofa for a cuddle. I’m sure he knows that Dad needs extra care and attention. Dads speech is almost non existent now, even if you ask him a simple question. Sometimes it looks like he doesn’t even hear you, sometimes you can see he’s trying hard to answer, and sometimes he succeeds in doing so. We went out for dinner with his oldest friend and his wife last night. They are fellow publicans and Steve is a fantastic story teller, in the same way Dad was. Maybe it’s part of being in the trade. Got to be able to have ‘a yarn’ as Dad would say. Whilst at the dinner table, Dad spent his time colouring in with his new travel set if he wasn’t eating. It keeps him calm and occupied. I’m not sure we’d have been able to spend as much time out without it, so it’s a fantastic discovery. However, you could see that he was listening to the conversation, particularly Steve and his story’s of the past and all their shenanigans - of which there were many! A soft smile sat on his face most of the way through the stories. Bitter sweet emotions were felt by us all I think. I’m grateful that he’s able to take in things still, just so heartbreaking that he can’t express himself anymore. Trying my best to hold onto the fact that right now, we can relive these memories with him, even though it’s far from ‘normal’. If you still have parents and grandparents, I urge you to ask them about their life. Better still, set your phone camera up and record it, one day it will be all you have. #frontaltemporaldementia #dementiawareness #picksdisease #dementia #raredementia #frontallobedementia

We have had a really lovely and special day today. This afternoon a lady came in, with her elderly mother, who suffers with Dementia. She hoped, her mother could sit and watch the children as it is something that she enjoys and calms her. I’m not sure what emotions we felt this afternoon, but watching this lady, in awe of the children and knowing it was helping with such an awful condition was quite emotional. Thank you to the parents for supporting us with this and for engaging with the lady when she spoke to you. People always say that babies and toddlers can have a positive impact on the elderly but I hadn’t seen it in this way. It was a very humbling day and i would do it again in a heart beat! #dementia #dementiawareness #helpingthecommunity

When will we STOP seeing ageing as a downhill slide??
___
Society as a whole perceives ageing as something we can’t look forward to. Older people are often marginalised and excluded from their communities based on their age.

I see it everyday, where people living with dementia and their caregivers, feel like they can’t go out in public and to events. Where does this belief come from? Why do they feel like they cannot go out of their front door and would rather stay at home behind closed doors?

Older people are not less deserving. Ageism and society’s deeply engrained beliefs about older people have had a negative impact on services offered and the way that they are delivered.

We need to start to recognise the contributions that older people play in our society and treat them accordingly. They are no less deserving to access to high quality treatment and support than their younger counterparts.

As someone who works with older adults every day, I get to experience first hand the positive impact they have both on me at a personal level, and on a broader community level.

They can’t have this impact behind closed doors.
