Testimonials from a recent event…

“I have been to several lectures about dementia and this has been the most helpful by far”

“I found it very informative and has made me more aware of the impact that dementia has on both the person and the family and friends…. “

“Brilliant! Informative, easy for me to understand – should be shared with more people. Will highly recommend to others. ‘Experience my World’ exercise was fantastic to understand that it really feels like to live with dementia and build empathy.”

“Very informative. Learned things I didn’t even know I needed to know! Michele was an excellent presenter. I want to know more now! Good to meet other people in similar situation.”
