Vicky’s July update

As many of you know, my dearest father is suffering with dementia & his health has deteriorated so rapidly in recent months to the extent that it’s hard to keep up with the constantly changing situation.

At the start of July we had a heart-breaking meeting with his care team to discuss his end of life plan – to say the least a difficult discussion – and facing up the inevitable like that definitely wasn’t easy, but I wanted to share with you all the positives that have come out of this for myself and my family. Instead of dwelling on the negatives that can drag us down we have tried to focus on the good things – and there are actually many.

We have found Dad a place to live where he is safe and settled and is able to do so many more activities than we would ever be able to have done with him at home. He is genuinely cared for & looked after so gently & with such dignity which means that we are able to go and visit and spend happy times with him. He really doesn’t have much memory of events or people, but there are moments of clarity for him that are so precious to us now. Previously life could at times be a bit of a battle with him, he is now much calmer & lovely to be around – and we all feel it.

Being able to share more positive thoughts and feelings with my family has really helped us all hugely. It’s a hard thing to admit, but whereas a few months ago I would slightly dread the phone call to my parents and approach the visit with trepidation I can now happily pop over & just spend time with them.

This is yet another example for me in the validity of the Universal Law of Attraction – positive or negative thoughts bringing positive or negative experiences into our lives. Thinking about what we want in our lives rather than what we don’t and appreciating what we have has really helped turn around what could have been an awful situation.

If anyone is interested in finding out more about how this could help in their own lives please do give us a call, or if you would like to share some of your own experiences do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.

And finally, thank you for taking time to read this – your support means the world
