Maria Filomena Mira Martins Cunha



My name is Filomena Martins Cunha, I have 62 years, and I'm living by the sea in a locality called Algés, in the metropolitan area of Lisbon. I have a degree in Organizational Psychology and have always worked in human resources management. I currently dedicate my time to volunteering, notably as a member of the national board of Alzheimer Portugal.

Seven years ago, my mother was diagnosed with dementia (Alzheimer's disease), and since that date and until her death 5 months ago, my sister, and I were her carers. I am an active person, social and with varied interests ranging from swimming, and hiking with my dogs, to reading, horticulture, and gardening.

Maria Filomena Mira was nominated by Alzheimer Portugal.
