Interview with Peter Hill of UK Health Radio…..and BoldAge

Recently I was asked by Peter Hill of UK Health Radio to have a chat on his radio show, called The ‘D’ Word….we used the wonderful technology of Zoom to record the interview, which always works for me far better than anything else as I can see the person and they can see me thinking.

Peter had obviously done his homework as he fed me lines which sparked sentences from me that I’ve probably said a thousand times before, but that’s what I need when being interviewed….

We spoke about all manner of things; my diagnosis, “Lessons to be learnt for the health care profession…”, life, death and much more…..

We spoke for about half an hour and here’s the link….there’s a little ‘listen’ icon underneath Peters piccie which takes you to another page where you can click the play icon at the top left…..

About wendy7713

On the 31st July 2014 I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia. I may not have much of a short term memory anymore but that date is one I’ll never forget. I’m 58 years young, live happily alone in Yorkshire, have 2 daughters and I’m currently still in full time employment in the NHS. However, I’m now in the process of taking early retirement to give me a chance of enjoying life while I’m still me. I've started this blog to allow me, in the first instance, to write all my thoughts before they’re lost. If anyone chooses to follow my ramblings it will serve as a way of raising awareness on the lack of research into Alzheimer's. It will hopefully convey the helplessness of those diagnosed with dementia, as there is no cure – the end is inevitable. However, I’m also hoping I can convey that, although we've been diagnosed, people like me still have a substantial contribution to make; we still have a sense of humour; we sill have feelings. I’m hoping to show the reality of trying to cope on a day to day basis with the ever-changing environment that dementia throws at those diagnosed with the condition. What I want is not sympathy. What I want is simply to raise awareness.

  1. Thank you for the lovely hug, Wendy! And I’ve just enjoyed listening to you and Peter chatting together, and I can’t deny you made me chuckle in places, and nod in agreement in others. Enjoy your weekend! (I’ll miss you!)
