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.
