Dementia and Me, My Story

October 11, 2020

In 2016 a few days before Christmas, my Dad was diagnosed with Dementia. I was 23 and living abroad on a year contract at Disney World. At the time of diagnosis, I had no idea how much my life and the life of those around me was going to change. This experience has been one of the hardest and most traumatic experiences I have ever been through. It's something no one in the world can prepare you for and something I truly feel is not spoken about enough. Dementia is cruel and I wish more than anything there was something I could do to stop it happening to others.
