In the shoes of Kate Swaffer –
my Australian friend living with dementia
Above is an extremely powerful blogpost by my Australian friend Kate Swaffer: “In the shoes of a (wonderful, inspirational) person with dementia.”
I am very honoured to have Kate’s permission to re-blog it here as deep food for thought. It is a “must read” for anyone who wants, or indeed needs, to understand more about the remorseless disease that is called dementia – and how it actually feels to be living with young onset dementia.
You can read here about the day Kate and I finally met, with other #dementiachallengers in London and here is the poem I wrote about Kate as she flew home to Australia a week later.
