My site kateswaffer.com is committed to meaningful dialogue with a wide range of stakeholders about the critical issues impacting a person living with a diagnosis of dementia and their loved ones.
I also wish to acknowledge the traditional owners of country throughout Australia, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. I pay my respects to them and their cultures, and to elders both past and present and emerging.

Opinions in this blog, if authored by me, are my own.
Note, I might also change my mind on a topic tomorrow, if I read something, or experience something that encourages me to do so.
Blogs authored by others, including research articles, do not indicate my endorsement, merely my willingness to have other opinions here and provide a more diverse collection of thought.
Comments I have approved, also do not indicate my agreement or approval.
I will not allow all opinions here, if they are especially vindictive, hurtful or are offensive, although have occasionally approved some that are.
But, please realise they do hurt and upset me and sometimes others, often. In an attempt to be fair to others, I still do approve many that have and continue to hurt my feelings.
Signing up to this site means you will receive the link to my daily blog straight into your email inbox. I will NEVER share or sell your information.
Please note: your entries may be modified, and any inappropriate entries will be deleted. The primary purpose of my blog is to recall my thoughts and activities, but I want it to remain informative, inspired, and above all, honourable. Finally, I want it to reach out to you. I will always change any words that are offensive to others, especially those disrespectful to people with dementia.
