Graeme Atkins is the 2020 winner of the Richard Taylor Advocates Award, and on Day 27 of Dementia Awareness Month, we are privileged to highlight some of the songs Graeme, with the support of his wife Susan, has composed and performed.
Graeme was diagnosed with Younger Onset Dementia in 2009, and he says ‘his dementia story’ is actually ‘our dementia story’, as it is his partner Susan’s story as well. DAI is delighted to share two his songs with you here today. You can also read a more detailed blog about his story here, an Interview with myself.
Thank you Graeme. We are so glad you found DAI.
