Male , 69

Profile
Male 65
I am a person with Mild cognitive impairment, along with osteoarthritis and I am living with a chest condition called Bronchiectasis.
Many years ago as a minor I was abused and I would like to help others who struggle to cope with living with this horror

Life experiences

life with comorbidities

The understanding of what is like living with a memory problem along with chest problems.
I also coped after being a used as a minor

Why Mentor in Horsesmouth

I know how difficult things can be and would like to share my limited experiences and knowledge of this illness in the hope that I can help others while I am able to do it.
I was also given a lot of support in the beginning and I would like to re pay this by helping others in the same position.
I also think that we need to raise awareness and re-educate people, so that people understand the illness better than they do today, and remove the myths that exist, such as I have heard people ask it dementia is contagious

Learning to live again

I would like to help others who are struggling to cope with the same problems in life.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I am motivated because I wish to help others who are desperate for advice about dementia and where to look for information, concerning the various types of illness, and where they can get support. I know that many people are diagnosed these days, but they are not given all the information required nor are they told where they can get it. I am always free to talk to people who need help or advice about this subject, as it is a minefield to those going into the early stages, when they don't know where to look for information and support. I was given a lot of support early on and I wish to repay it in some small way, by helping those with this illness as and where possible Please feel free to contact me

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
