Human Rights, Ageing and Dementia: Challenging Current Practice

Todays blog is a video of my friend and colleague, Kate Swaffer, challenging us all to think about human rights, ageing and of especially about dementia as a condition causing acquired disability, in the context of challenging current practice. For the purposes of the video, Kate says, she was asked to talk about the key messages she had hoped the audience would take away from her presentation at the ADA Australia conference, in 2018.

It is because of People like Kate, like Christine Bryden, Richard Taylor, James Mckillop, that I continue to advocate, they have worked and given so much of themselves, and I feel I have a duty as person living with Dementia to do mine.
