  1. Thank you Susan for continuing to share exactly how you are experiencing your day to day challenges.

    I believe I signed some kind of online petition to government sometime in the past month about the issues you raise regarding residential and support services. I added a personal note about the concerns you have mentioned. It may have come from the Alzheimer Society page.

  2. Susan, my thoughts are prayers are often with you as you endeavour to understand how your life is and will change. I will keep your concerns in mind for any opportunity I have to talk/write about the current health care system. The is a large demographic of seniors in Victoria, and this is a timely topic.

    I hope to see you at the Class of 1967 reunion next year.

  3. Dear Sue, I think it is wonderful that you are writng this blog of your journey. It is very brave and I’m sure helpful to many people. I think of you often and pray for you and your family ( who by the way are very blessed to have you). Keep up the great work and enjoy each day as much as you can. An old friend Jane
