We launch the whole event with a conversation about DEEP self and what it means to us. You must book for each event though so you receive the zoom link. You can sign up for this specific one via

There are lots of sessions during the week, ranging from the story of DEEP itself, of which Minds and Voices is a member and which means sooo much to me. So I have so much to be grateful to DEEP for, as do many. DEEP is part of Innovations in Dementia, those wonderful people who I’ll do anything for….

There’s also sessions on Craftivism, Peer Support, Diversity, the Reality of living with dementia and so much more.

Come online and see many of my playmates tell their story….

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.
