Day 2

Another full and interesting day. More interest in conference and ideas for key notes. We were at the PMLD sirg who are keen to recognise Loretto and suggesting a Loretto Lambe family carer event at each of their meetings/round tables. Lovely idea and we highlighted that it would need to include good food and wine as well as interesting meeting content! Seriously a lovely idea and would be so good to have more family input.
Lots of new contacts and loads of ideas not least following a session highlighting the use of video interactive guidance with support workers in aus following training from our Sandra Strathie! Not enough evidence apparently about physical activity for people with PMLD so several projects to be set up in Scotland – Andrew will be thrilled! Sun shining again too how lucky are we!
