I am Liv Thorsen from Gjøvik, Norway. Gjøvik is a small town north from Oslo and is situated next to the largest lake in Norway.
As a psychiatric nurse and teacher I have been working in patient and relative education for many years, also for carers of people with dementia. My husband, Kjell got an Alzheimer diagnose eight years ago, and we live together in a little house with a nice garden. We have 5 children and 11 grandchildren.
I am also the chairman for our local dementia organisation, and a local politician.
Liv was nominated by the Norwegian Health Association.
