If I could buy one book this year, this would be it. Kate Swaffer is certainly an inspiration, her courage, strength and perserverence has broken the stigma of dementia. Starting out with a strong and meaningful dialogue, she shares with the world her diagnosis of dementia, her advantures, inspirationals and philosophioes in life; this is just a start. She has gone back to university and completing a Masters in Dementia Care from the university of Wollongong. She educates students on young onset dementia in the Wicking Dementia Centre Understanding Dementia Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), which has had more than 40,000 students worldwide. She’s also a key member of the Dementia Alliance International and I can’t even begin to list the number of awards she has attained and the number of communities and people that she has inspired.
If I could only get 1 book in 2016. This will be it.
