What does a person with dementia look like?
Guest Lecture – 28 March 2017
Presented by John Quinn & Glenys Petrie
Living Well With Dementia
It took 9 years from when John Quinn’s partner Glenys Petrie first became concerned about the subtle changes in John’s behaviour and personality, for him to be diagnosed with Dementia: Alzheimer’s of the Familial Type. John was still in his fifties.
He’s now endeavouring to live well with dementia and both John and Glenys are strong advocates about many aspects of Dementia. They both believe that a Dementia diagnosis doesn’t only affect the person diagnosed – it affects everyone involved. This lecture is about John’s journey and his life beyond a YOD diagnosis.
