Understanding the life of someone suffering from dementia

When I started blogging,  one of my first readers was Kate Swaffer. She is diagnosed with early on-set dementia. I have an appetite for questions — it’s one of the best ways I learn.

I proposed to her that we launch a joint blog where we have a conversation. I will ask her many of the questions I would love to be able to ask my parents. She has helped me gain a broader, more compassionate understanding of dementia and how I can best help my parents.

The blog is now live and I invite you all to take a look. It’s called The Dementia DialogueProud.
