#DAW2017 Western Isles Tour – Day Five

Well today is the last day of our tour of the Western Isles in partnership with NHS Western Isles.

Last night I had the great pleasure to attend the 30th anniversary of the Alzheimer Scotland local services and was so very honoured to spend time with some people who founded the local services right through to present day.

Today as I head for home, I leave with warmth I’m my heart and memories of the beautiful Scottish Islands and how kind the people are.

Some thank yous…..

Firstly to Chris Anne Campbell, Nurse Director NHS Western who kindly supported the tour, Denise Symington, Patient Focus & Public Involvement and Elizabeth Selby, Dementia Nurse Consultant NHS Western Isles who put the itinerary together and looked after me with such kindness and care.  And all the wonderful staff from so many different roles across NHS Western Isles who I met along the way.

Marion and all the team from Alzheimer Scotland, the people, the families, the volunteers and the walkers.

Big thanks to Fiona McQueen, CNO for Scotland, for the support and personal message to share at the talks.

Thank you all for the dedication and passion to support and care for others.

Thank you for the pledges.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

I travel home feeling grateful and inspired and look forward to returning this September for the next talks.

Thank you from all the DCV team.

I leave you with some photos of the people and places who have brought a smile to my ❤
