Part of the enduring stigma surrounding dementia is the collective misconception that a diagnosis means the end of someone’s life – or at least the end of a person’s ability to contribute to society.
Bobby Redman turns that notion on its head, living on her own and serving as an advocate for the entire community years after her diagnosis with frontotemporal dementia. In this episode, Redman shares the strategies that she’s developed to not just survive but thrive as an independent person with dementia, from both low- and high-tech supports around the house to her work with Dementia Australia.
Ending stigma and discrimination isn’t easy, but Redman provides a clear blueprint for the future.
