Post Just returned again
Hi my name is Ken and I live over the pond in the UK

I was a member until early last year, when I dropped out of many things, as I was doing too much and could not keep up. But today I felt that it was time to return again, and get involved while I can still do it.

My memory is worse than it was before, hence my problem logging in and forgetting my new password, but I am here.

I used to be a member of the Alzheimer's Society's Chat room "Talking Point" where I was also a moderator, and enjoyed doing it on my good days.

I am also a Ambassador with the UK based Lewy Body Society , which I believe has links with this group, but sadly they don't have online groups like this where you can share information.

Apart from that I travel around, giving talks to groups and Universities in the UK, where dementia is the main topic, as I want to raise the profile of the illness and try to remeove the stigma.

Welcome back Ken. Glad you are able to share your knowledge and experience with others to raise awareness about dementia. I hope you are getting good care so you can keep doing so well. Lynn
