In preparation of Season 3 of The Aged Care Enrichment Podcast (25th Jan 2022), we're looking back fondly on some of our favourite episodes, and this week we revisit the start of the journey with our very first episode - Life in the Slow Lane of Dementia with Christine Bryden (originally released in September 2020).
We are talking to the author and long-time dementia advocate, Christine Bryden, about her life with dementia and her work as one of Australia's first dementia advocates.
Christine was diagnosed with early onset dementia in 1995, at the age of forty-six. Her life transformed immediately as she left her job and focused on restructuring her life and raising her three daughters.
In the following twenty-five years she has been incredibly outspoken on her life with dementia, including writing five books about her experiences.
As you will hear, Christine is passionate about addressing some misconceptions of dementia and talks openly about the changes that she would like to see in the way that people with dementia are viewed.
