I am Chris from Tallinn, Estonia.
I joined the NGO Life with Dementia in Estonia shortly after my mother's diagnosis of Alzheimer disease. My journey as caregiver lasted more than six years. The journey was colorful and consisted of different experiences. I do actively share the journey and my learning with the aim of increasing awareness and diminishing the stigma around dementia. Knowing the challenges and pain points of a life with dementia, I am happy to contribute to the situation of people living with dementia and their carers well-being by representing them. I do believe that people with dementia do deserve more respect and they need to be treated with more dignity.
Chris was nominated by NGO Living with Dementia.
