A Daughter’s journey whose Dad succumbed
to an aggressive form of dementia, difficulty
in getting a confirmed diagnosis and lack of
specialised support to enable him to live well at
home with Dementia as the disease progressed.
How could we issue for people with Dementia
and their families approaching end of life in a
person-centred way. The impact of Dementia on
3 generations of family.
A Daughter’s Mental Health History, early stage Menopause, and fears of Dementia leading to an aborted suicide attempt, subsequent recovery generating ‘Hope’ for people ‘living with’ or ‘at risk’ of Dementia, through challenging attitudes to Mental health issues, increasing awareness of ‘self- care’ techniques including Tantra Yoga practice which is thousands of years old, the original ‘mind, body & spiritual practice’. Buddha was asked,“What have you gained from meditation?” He replied, “Nothing!”, however Buddha said, “let me tell you what I lost: Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of Old Age and Death.”
Jo’s learning of Ageless Grace, a cutting-edge Brain- Body Fitness Program based on Neuroscience and Play, and quest to understand if this may have helped improve her Dad’s journey.
