On Day 13 of the #DAI #WAM2018 #Hello my name is blog series, we feature DAI member Dennis Frost from near Kiama in NSW. Dennis speaks to us candidly, sharing his story of being diagnosed with a younger onset dementia, and the advice given to give up work, and that he may have a only few or maybe up to 20 years to live! It is a common story, as this series is highlighting.
Dennis also talks about the stigma, and the reactions of others, and that the stigma and often hidden social barriers are often worse then the dementia. He also shares how meeting others with dementia has helped him to live more productively and positively with dementia. Thank yo Dennis. for sharing your story with us.
