Hi Paul,

Dee my hubby has had dealings with headway, he found them very helpful as did i. He attends a weekly goup when we are home and he was reluctant to go at first but now really enjoys it.

He tells me they do all kinds of things there from memory games etc, but the thing he liked the most was talking to others in the same boat as himself.

Take care now and hope headway goes well for you

Hello Paul,

I was in touch with Headway and they are very helpful and reassuring. Someone came to see me and talk to me about what happened and then I was asked to go to group meetings once a week but they were too far away! They still phone me to see how I am and offer advice about things that are bothering me.

Hope this helps
