The Alzheimer Society of Ireland has invited me to speak during Carers Week 2013 on Wednesday 12th June 2013 in Dublin.
The event provides an opportunity for carers to listen to me speak about my own journey as a carer. It will also provide a space to engage in a focused discussion on some of the issues that I will raise and for people to voice their own opinions on the financial, emotional and social costs of caring
for a family member with dementia.
The discussion will inform future policy work for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland ensuring that the voice of carers continues to be recognized and included as well as empowering carers themselves.
I am very much looking forward to the event and to visiting Dublin again.
