Sunday Times Best Selling Author, Wendy Mitchell Joins Excelcare Webinar

Wendy Mitchell is a blogger, activist, and Sunday Times Best Selling author, who rose to prominence with her debut novel ‘Somebody I Used to Know’, a memoir depicting her experience during the early stages of dementia.

Wendy was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia in July 2014, which inspired her to start a blog about her journey and experience. Wendy describes her blog as “a reminder of what I’ve done and said in the past – it now serves as a memory.” Her goal is to raise awareness of dementia, whilst also documenting her experience. Wendy is now the proud author of Sunday Times Best Selling book ‘Somebody I Used to Know’, which depicts her journey since her diagnosis.

On the 28th February, Wendy Mitchell will be joining Excelcare’s monthly webinar to share her personal experiences living with dementia, advice with relatives of Excelcare residents and people who may be seeking care for a loved one.

This monthly webinar, named ‘Let’s Discuss Dementia’ acts as an open forum for discussion and provides advice to people whose loved ones are living with dementia. Lead by Dementia Care Lead, Ann-Marie Harmer, the monthly webinar discusses a range of different topics from dealing with a diagnosis, to supporting people with change and sharing some useful activities for reminiscence to name a few.

Wendy will be the first guest to share a first-person experience, giving guests an entirely different perspective on what it is like to live with dementia. Wendy will also be discussing details from her new book, ‘What I wish people knew about dementia’.

Excelcare is inviting members of the public who wish to hear about Wendy’s story to their upcoming webinar on 28th February at 6:30 pm. If you would like to sign up for a place on this webinar, please click the link below.
