Wendy Mitchell: Somebody I Used To Know

What do you lose when you lose your memories? What do you value when this loss reframes how you’ve lived, and how you will live in the future? What do you do when you no longer recognise those who are supposed to mean the most to you?

Wendy Mitchell had a busy life raising two daughters, a job within the NHS and weekends spent running and climbing mountains when slowly, a mist settled deep inside the mind she once knew so well, blurring the world around her. At the age fifty-eight, she was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s. Shocked by the lack of awareness about the disease, both in the community and in hospitals, she vowed to spend her time raising awareness about dementia and encouraging others to see that there is life after a diagnosis. Join Wendy in an insightful conversation where she will speak about her experiences and hopes for the future.
