Dr Lesley Trenner – Becoming a parent to your own parent

Our presentation today was by Dr Lesley Trenner. She is a life coach and specialises in providing advice for carers who look after people with dementia. She also calls herself an agony aunt as she writes various columns.

David Cohen one of the carers read 3 poems by Rudyard Kipling, ‘The Glory of the Garden’, ‘A River’s Tale’ and ‘IF’ which were received well by the members.

We had a special visit by the Mayor of Enfield, Cllr Pat Ekechi who’s mother also suffers with dementia and was therefore was able to empathise with the group.
