Gill Phillips - Whose Shoes? reblogged this on Whose Shoes? and commented:

This is an extremely powerful post by inspirational Zoe Harris, founder and director of Care Charts UK, a social enterprise set up in the light of her late husband’s experience with dementia. Zoe PV0_1163cI was delighted when Zoe came along to our 'launch event' for our series of sixteen Whose Shoes?® sessions in West Kent to build 'dementia friendly communities'. West Kent has been a wonderful breeding ground for people who really 'get' Whose Shoes?® and are keen to be part of the assets-based approach we are trying to build, raising awareness but specifically seeking to fire local people to take action and spread the fires of positive change. As a result of this first session, Zoe became a Whose Shoes? facilitator as an extra way to channel the insight, passion and knowledge gained through her long experience of caring for Geoff. I am very honoured to be associated with Zoe and her wonderful work.

Life is LIKE

Life is like the ocean.

and rough or rigid,

but in the end, it is always beautiful.
