DAI member Jane Callachan lives in Salem, Massachusetts and as part of our Dementia Awareness Month series of vlogs/blogs, shares why she is glad she joined DAI. It is already day 20 of this campaign, and we hope you are enjoying hearing from our members…
Jane was diagnosed with younger onset dementia aged 55, and she regularly joins the Friday afternoon DAI peer to peer support group. One of the best things about these groups, Jane said, is that she can join online, and doesn’t have to drive to one!
DAI has helped help Jane feel much more independent, and has introduced her to others who are living positively, in spite of dementia. “DAI really does make a difference”.
Thank you Jane. We are glad you found DAI.
Since you’re here…
… we’re asking readers like you to support our members, by donating to our organizaton.
With more than 50 million people living with dementia, and the Coronavisus pandemic causing everyone to operate in a virtual world, our work has never been more important.
Every contribution, however big or small, is so valuable to our work of supporting people diagnosed with any type of dementia to live more positively, and with a greater sense of hope. Thank you.
