“See life Thru the Looking Glass of fellow PWD (Persons With Dementia) Life Perceptions.”
Tru here. “Best of 2014” PWD online Newsletter was published Jan 4, 2015. It held 55 PWD participants (Persons With Dementia) who contributed links for written, pictorial or video material. Index to newsletter is available at top of newsletter page. This “Best of 2014” issue included 79 written pieces, 30 video links, and about 10 separate pictures. Many resources in one location. New newsletter issues will now be available monthly, with subscription option in upper right corner of newsletter page. I would like the lived experiences shared in PWD Perspective to be applied by both PWD and non-PWD. Application of these experiences can enrich the relationships of all concerned. * Admin issues: SHARE dementia awareness thru buttons below. If interested in receiving notice of future blog postings there is a “follow” button in the upper left corner (MS Explorer) or lower right (Safari and Chrome).

Dear Truthful Kindness
I write on behalf of my remarkable sister Catherine (Verner) – who lives on the west coast of Scotland, UK.
For the past 10 years, she has been a care giver at home to our dear mother who suffered from combined Alzheimer’s Disease / Vascular Dementia, until she passed away peacefully in October 2020.
Catherine was also awarded a Master’s degree in Dementia Studies from Stirling University, and retains contact with the University’s center of dementia research.
Today, her passion is to reach out and help other family caregivers in a situation that she found herself in many years ago (primarily via her website).
The website, is a combination of free resources plus a growing series of informative and practical books for sale, all aimed at supporting families living at home in the community.
It can be viewed here.
Catherine writes regular Newsletters, which are informative and in-depth, topical and insightful, and I was wondering if she could become a free contributor on your informative and touching website.
I believe her articles would appeal to your readers, who could benefit directly from her combined theoretical and practical expertise.
Catherine would also be open to researching and writing about topics that you think might be relevant.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
You looked after your mother so well, which should make you proud.
Dr. Laverty (Family Doctor – UK NHS)’
