Hilary Doxford

Hello, I’m Hilary Doxford. I was 53 when I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s Disease in 2012. Since then, unsurprisingly, I have become passionate in supporting research into dementia and dementia care.

Amongst other activities, I am an Ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society, a member of their Research Network and have been a side-by-side volunteer. In 2013 I was invited to the G8 Dementia Summit and after addressing the World Dementia Council set up by David Cameron and Jeremy Hunt was offered a seat on the Council. I was also Vice-Chair of the European Working Group of People with Dementia which inspired me to co-found the 3 Nations Dementia Working Group. I sit on many committees including the Dept of Health and Social Care’s Dementia Programme Board and have spoken at many national and international conferences.

I enjoy my local memory café and being in the company of many friends with a diagnosis. Basically, I want to work with and help those who are trying to help me and my friends.
