Julie lived in Hayfield in the High Peak for many years and has recently moved to Tideswell in the Derbyshire Dales. She has always been interested in health and studied health related subjects at university.
Julie was a volunteer at Disability Stockport for 12 years and is currently volunteering at Sheffield Hospital on the chemo day care unit. Until recently Julie was a full-time carer for her mother who was diagnosed with vascular dementia several years ago. Of all Julie’s life experiences, caring for her elderly mother was the saddest and most challenging thing she has ever had to do. Julie is aware that as the population now lives longer, dementia impacts on everyone’s life at some time.
