Some people feel guilty about havinga dream because it inferrs that our loved-one will have passed away. We know that this will happen at some point – indeed death is probably the only certainty in life. So planning for that time when your loved-one has gone to a better place and you’re free of your responsibilities, is a perfectly reasonable and sensible thing to do. We know, from our loved-ones dementia that life is short and that we should make the most of it. So let’s make a plan!

What are you going to do? What’s your dream? For some, it might be a free fall paraschute jump or diving with whales, or simply lying and soaking up the sun on a desert island.

Having a dream is so important. It gives us hope and courage and strength to carry on in the knowledge that one day, our time will be our own.
