Mick Carmody: living with younger onset dementia

Our Day 3 Dementia Awareness Month 2015 blog features DAI Board member, Mick Carmody on 612ABC Brisbane radio this week, who speaks frankly about living with younger onset dementia.  The journalist has referred to it as early onset dementia, a term that is not used so often now, due to the reality anyone can be in the early stages of dementia, regardless of their age.

Congratulations and thank you Mick, and thanks for representing your friends and others with dementia so well. Your global advocacy work, in particular hosting support groups at time zones all around the world, is incredibly commendable. Everyone at DAI is proud of you.
