For those who want to see this, and missed it on Tuesday night, here is the recording of the SBS Insight program, Dancing with Dementia, featuring a number of Australians. It attempted to show the dark and lighter sides of dementia, which I feel was achieved. That challenge for us trying to live better with dementia, is to date, the media almost only ever focus on the tragic discourse, which can be disabling and disempowering, but also, misses the reality that there are many days or moments, when we do and can still laugh and have fun. Thanks SBS for helping to change the perceptions of dementia; we are not all dribbling down our soup, at least not yet!
