Enter our Mother’s Day competition to win a memento of mum

Mother’s Day is drawing near, and if you’ve read our story, you’ll know that our Founder Diane’s mum is the inspiration behind Ambiance Care.

After caring for her mum with dementia for many years yet struggling to access the help her mum needed, Diane became passionate about filling the gaps in the system, creating her own specialised dementia home care and advisory service here in Stockport.

Diane’s mum remains a driving inspiration for the standard of dementia care we offer across Stockport, South Manchester, East Cheshire and Trafford, and we’re honouring her this year with a special competition.

Keep mum close with a personalised pendant

With Mother’s Day just a week away, we’re giving you the chance to win something you’re sure to treasure.

Diane says: “Many of you will know that I cared for my lovely mum who had dementia for many years. Well, last Christmas my daughter gave me a beautiful necklace engraved with mum’s handwriting from a card I had kept. It was the single most touching and precious gift I’ve ever received and it reduced me to tears.

“I would like someone else to experience the joy something as special as this brings, so we’ve teamed up with Kate at Stockport-based Finger And Thumbs Keepsakes to offer you the opportunity to win an engraved pendant of your own, similar to mine, to mark Mother’s Day.”

How to enter

To enter, we’re inviting you to think about your mum – specifically her hands. Our mothers’ hands play such an important role in our lives, from birth when they keep us safe, in childhood when they guide us and later in adulthood, when they reassure.

“I’d like to hear precious stories about your mum, and how in her hands, your life was shaped and moulded. I invite you to share any pictures you might have of your mum, too – the pictures above include one of my lovely mum’s hands,” Diane says.

To enter the competition, head over to the post on our Facebook page, give both our page and the post a ‘like’ and share memories of your mum in the post comments. Shares are appreciated, too!

If you’re not on Facebook, simply share your stories of mum in the comments below. We’ll be drawing a winner on Mother’ Day and together with Kate, we’ll be in touch to create a special memento of your mum. Good luck!

In the meantime, here’s Diane’s story about her mum’s hands and how they shaped her experiences from birth, into childhood and through adulthood:
