I was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s eight years ago, and was fortunate to get a quick and early diagnosis because I had a GP who really listened. I’ve been a volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Society since they sought me out following a Facebook post, and have discovered a talent for public speaking that is well used.
Like all those living with dementia, I am aware that I have a limited time to be active and want to do all I can to improve life for those who live with this devastating disease.
I am passionate about good support at the time of diagnosis, and good end of life care – and of the course all the rest of the journey too.
I’ve discovered it is possible to live a full rich life with dementia, rolling with the bad days and grateful for the wonderful support that the Alzheimer’s Society offers.
