Wendy was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia on the 31st July 2014 at the age of 58 years young. At the time she was working full time in the NHS.
Post diagnosis, she was so shocked by the lack of awareness, both in the community and the clinical world, that she now spends all her time travelling around the country raising awareness and encouraging others to speak out in order to reduce the stigma associated with dementia.
Wendy is now proud to be the author of two Sunday Times best sellers, Somebody I Used to Know, and What I wish people knew about dementia, and two Honorary Doctorates. Her third and final book, One Last Thing, Living with the end in mind has just been released.
