EWGPWD member Helga Rohra writes about speaking at Alzheimer Society of Finland conference

Sunday 29 January 2017

Living with dementia means staying active and raising awareness about our still existing abilities. The ability to talk, to write, to be on stage and spread a positive message.

I felt valued and honoured to be invited by the National Finnish Alzheimer Society Muistiliitto in November 2016.

As a keynote speaker I was very impressed that my English speech was translated into Finnish and also sign language was used.

A highlight was the meeting with the Finnish Working Group of People with Dementia. I was impressed by my tough working colleagues, who even cover 300km just to take part in the meeting.

My message: Dementia knows no borders together people with dementia are stronger than ever.
