Abstract

Both of my parents-in-law have died of dementia. I have experienced first-hand how dementia affects individuals and families and how isolating and painful it can be, particularly if good information, advice and support are not readily available. I am passionate about raising awareness of this and other conditions where people face loneliness, stigma and ignorance. In the second part of my post, following on from ‘Blogging to share good practice‘, here I discuss the importance of online communities in building awareness of dementia, and how we can work together to make a real impact on the lives of those living with dementia and those around it.
