A poem by our wonderful client!

We are thrilled to share with you an extraordinary piece of writing from one of our remarkable clients, Jane M.

Her poem, which delves into the depths of memory repair after a brain injury, is nothing short of inspiring. We believe it beautifully encapsulates the resilience and determination that Jane embodies in her journey.

Here are Jane’s profound words:

“Let me stop you there.

Before you stop and stare at my memory repair.

Do you know, I’m still in there

A new me, you can not see

Who is trying to set their memory free

Hand Signals, fingers moving maybe even counting or

one two three memory aids to me

Not just the crazy that you think you see

My eyes they are not anxiously dancing

They are merely memory page glancing mindful pages that I’ve written

for the intermittent memory pages daily bind

In my mind for my memory to find.

For it is there, from which I need my visual memory feed

A book from which you can’t see, my invisible memory seed.

So let me stop you there

Before you judge my memory repair.

When you stand, sit or stare.

What you do if you were me

How would you set your memory free?

How would you remember your memory!

-Jane M-

Jane’s poem not only sheds light on the challenges she faces but also offers a perspective that is both enlightening and empowering. Through her verses, she invites us to see beyond the surface and understand the intricacies of memory loss and recovery.

As a Charity dedicated to supporting individuals through their cognitive rehabilitation journeys, we are deeply moved by Jane’s courage and resilience.

Her poem serves as a reminder of the importance of empathy, understanding, and innovation in addressing the needs of those navigating memory repair.

We invite you to take a moment to read Jane’s poem and reflect on the questions she poses:

“What would you do if you were me? How would you set your memory free? How would you remember your memory?”

Jane’s words encourage us to think critically about memory care and inspire us to continue our efforts in providing innovative solutions and support to individuals like her.

Thank you, Jane, for sharing your story with us. Your strength and bravery are truly inspiring, and we are honoured to be a part of your journey.
