Okay, tonight I have to say it………”QUEENSLANDER”.
Now, to understand that you’d have to live in Australia, and support Rugby League football.
Tonight was the first of three games between two Australian States, both of which think they have the better football teams, but most people know that New South Wales is mistaken.
Sometimes it gets a bit crazy the way Australians follow their sports and the sporting culture of the entire nation for ALL sports. But that’s a part of who we are.
Anyway the best team won: QUEENSLAND (yeah) – 11 ; NSW – 10. Truly you cannot believe how much stirring and banter will come from that. AND, we did it on their turf!
So that became the important thing for me tonight, while Glenys did me a HUGE favour typing up some notes for an Alzheimer’s Australia function in Melbourne tomorrow afternoon.
Yes, we’re in Melbourne to talk about a valued Program that supports people who are under the age of 65 years, when diagnosed with YOD. It provides Key Workers for the person living with Dementia, their Carers and families.
It’s an individualist program, confidential and for me life changing. It’s about having a consistent person who listens to my concerns, who I feel respects me and my wishes, and helps to guide me to planning better to live well at home, for longer. (or if the case may be, in a care facility.) My Key Worker Lynda, was also one of the only people who was aware of Glenys’ concerns and needs, because she listened and provided information that assisted Glenys.
Tonight my priority was football (as is the way in Australia), but tomorrow I’ll be back with my ‘advocacy hat’ on.
(queenslander) Ha ha.
