Veda Meneghetti’s story about dealing with dementia

Today for our series of daily World Alzheimer’s Month 2016 blogs #WAM2016 #DAM2016, and in the theme of #RememberMe we are highlighting one of our members, Veda Meneghetti who lives in Gerringong in NSW, just south of Sydney. Veda is a member of the DAG’s, an integral part of the now world recognised Kiama Dementia Friendly Community Pilot Project, made this video a couple of year ago, her story of living with dementia, which includes her singing to a background of many of her own photographs.

Veda joins the weekly support group in Australia occasionally, and also the Aphasia support group we host monthly. Once you meet Veda, it is almost sure  you will not forget her. Thank you Veda (and her partner Lynda) for making this available to us all on YouTube.
