I have early stage Alzheimer’s and I’m heartily sick and tired of all the negative stereotyping around my condition. So I have launched a ‘rethink dementia‘ campaign to try and get people to understand that many of us lead fulfilling lives - and that not everyone is sitting slumped in a PVC armchair listening to Foster and Allen all day long. There’s a ‘rethink dementia’ page up on Facebook that anyone is welcome to join. I invite you to use social media to post details about yourself and what you do: this could be a photo on instagram, or a video on YouTube, with an invitation for people to ‘rethink dementia’. I think there’s a need to push back against the stigma - please join in!
