Kate Swaffer: On dementia, disAbility and writing my book

I don’t usually blog at 7.36 pm but this just needs to be widely read. What an amazing woman: I feel blessed that she is my cyber friend, and that we will meet soon.

Jessica Kingsley Publishers in the UK sent me a few questions to answer about what is was like when first diagnosed with dementia, how dementia has impacted my life and family, and on living beyond dementia, continuing to study and much more… you can hear my response here.

My book “What the hell happened to my Brain?: Living beyond dementia” released on January 21, 2016 by Jessica Kingsley Publishers in the UK, and is available there, on Amazon, The Book Depository and through selected bookshops.

If you have dementia, join me and others living with dementia from around the world at Dementia Alliance International, an advocacy and support group of, by and for people with dementia which is exclusive to us, and free – http://www.joindai.org
