Before you start

Please note that although I currently volunteer for Age UK, and previously volunteered for the UK’s Stroke Association, the views expressed in this blog are strictly my own. I am not a spokesperson for any organisation. I am based in the UK and the blog therefore has a UK bias – I’ve tried to use the Glossary to explain any terms which might be ambiguous, but if you think there is anything I’ve missed, please message me. Lastly, you’ll find typos here, although I do my best to correct them. There are reasons for this, which you’ll discover as you read.
