Colten Care Lymington News

The other side of this week's news about Colten Care Lymington 

Colten Care Lymington has been in the news this week.

It's not for us to comment on that particular news story about which few of us will know the facts.  Unfortunately though it's  considered necessary by the publishers of most news sources, to dramatise the negative in preference to the positive.  The reasons for that are obvious of course - bad news apparently still sells much better than good news!

The other side of a different story about Colten Care specialist dementia care

First of all, several of the care staff in the picture below were in the team of relatives and care staff who bicycled last year from Winchester to Lymington to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer's Research - all spending their own precious spare time on a long and exhausting day's cycling for a cause dear to people who deal daily with what it's really like, for those living with dementia and especially Alzheimer's Disease, and especially in the later stages of the disease which can be so traumatic for all concerned.
