Chris Maddocks

I am a retired Police Officer. I was born and brought up in Wales where I lived until 2017. I now live in the South East of England.

In 2016, at the age of 60 I was diagnosed with early onset Vascular dementia and since then have also been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and Lewy Body dementia. I wanted to make a difference following my diagnosis and now describe myself as a dementia activist, giving talks and lectures to a variety of audiences to educate others about the realities of living with the condition. Becoming actively involved with the dementia movement has given me a renewed sense of purpose. I have a passion for inclusion and fairness and strive to make the world a better place for people with dementia. I am an Ambassador for a number of charities including Alzheimer’s Society, The Lewy Bodies Society, the National Activity Providers Association. I am also an active member of the DEEP network and advocate the benefits of craft and outdoor activity for people with dementia.
