Do Think Share – Living Well with Dementia Challenge, Wednesday 17th May..


Caring Words


If we are caring for someone with Dementia, or if we have a diagnosis ourselves, or if we are generally a human being, we will all need a little bit of support. Sometimes it’s difficult to ask for help, but when we do, it often lightens our load and makes life a little easier.

Who are the people that offer you support? Friends, Parents, Children, Partners? The word ‘Carer’ is a term used a lot and can mean lots of different things to different people, we’d like you to think a little bit about this.



Think about someone that cares for you, what are their qualities? What do they do? How do they support you? Make up a new word to describe what this person does and write the dictionary definition for them. Are they a ShoulderFriend or a KeeperUpper or a RockInAStormyOcean?



How did it feel to reflect on what that person does for you? Did it make you feel grateful? Was there anything about the relationship you would change?



Share your dictionary definition with us. Or if you’d rather, just share how doing the challenge made you feel. You can share on our website or on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #DoThinkShareDAW




Don’t forget to hashtag #ABookofMe & #DAW17 on Twitter & Facebook.
