About Me

Over nearly 20 years, I worked in different types of Care Homes and several Hospitals.

Since my diagnosis of Alzheimer’s and Frontotemporal Dementia in March 2017, I have not received any support, services or benefits nationally or locally or from the NHS.

With the help of the A Good Life with dementia course and groups locally and internationally like Dementia Alliance International, I have been enabled to reinvent myself, be able to support others and become an Global Activist for Dementia and Rights.
