For years I’ve helped the Alzheimer’s Society with their media training. Prepared their spokespeople. Readied them for tough questions. And now my mum has been diagnosed with dementia. So we really are united against the disease. In a way that, despite my work, I’d never really contemplated. As the women I know and love slips away I’m determined to capture her memories in an occasional series of posts. After all it’s only when memories are written down that they solidify into a history that can be passed on.
