Seminar: Wendy Mitchell - “Living with Dementia and My Passion for Research Involvement”

We all know there is no cure for dementia, so, following my diagnosis I discovered a new found passion for research which enables me to be involved in many ways, from committees to willing participant. All this involvement, I call my Sudoku. People often think that a diagnosis of dementia is the end. I'm here to show you that it can be the beginning of a new journey; a journey of adapting. If thought of as this, it can be filled with laughter and new opportunities which can in turn help with the daily struggles we have to face. During my talk I will give examples of how to get people with dementia involved as well as my own involvement in numerous studies, both as a participant and member of committees in an advisory capacity.

Brief Biography: I was diagnosed with Young Onset Dementia on the 31st July 2014 at the age of 58 years young. I might not have much of a short term memory but that’s one date I’ll never forget. I have 2 daughters and live happily alone in the East Riding of Yorkshire. I retired early from the NHS, having worked as a non-clinical team leader for 20 years. Post diagnosis, I was so shocked by the lack of awareness, both in the community and the clinical world, that I now spend all my time travelling around the country raising awareness and encouraging others to embrace my passion for research and to prove there is life after a diagnosis of dementia. 

Free. All welcome. No need to book.

If you are attending from outside the University, please check the seminar is taking place.

Please note: Edith Cavell Building is NOT on the main university campus, it is near Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Use postcode NR4 7UL for satnav purposes.

Finding Joy - Norwich Playhouse Theatre

THE FUNNY AND FEARLESS SELL-OUT MASK PRODUCTION FROM THE UK’S LEADING FULL MASK COMPANY. YOU’LL LAUGH, YOU’LL CRY, YOU’LL FIND JOY!

Joy is 83 today: she’s feisty, loves to dance, and is losing her memory. Her grandson Danny is rebellious, bright and always getting into trouble. When Danny decides to look after Joy, they discover a shared playfulness and growing love. But is that enough to face the challenges ahead?

Approaching the subject of dementia with humour and humanity, award-winning Finding Joy has performed to audiences across Europe and the UK, including a successful run at Edinburgh Fringe 2016.

Praised by press and public alike for its consummate full mask skills, engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, the company continues to involve and engage audiences across borders and boundaries with its wordless theatre.

Finding Joy is accessible to hearing and d/Deaf audiences alike. It is supported by Arts Council England and Worcestershire County Council, and was developed in association with The Hereford Courtyard, with inspiration from movement-play specialists JABADAO. 

Suitable for ages 12+

Market Engagement Plan for Norfolk - task and finish group - Strategic Co-Production

Norfolk County Council is working to improve the culture of engagement in the adult social care market in Norfolk and they are keen for your help.

There are various ways that you can get involved, from sharing information relating to how any of the 36 points have affected your organisation to offering your ideas on what a good solution to a recommended action would look like.

NCC are eager to facilitate this collaboration, and invite you to join one of the four task and finish groups that will address specific parts of the market engagement plan. If you wish to join one of these meetings, please contact Don Leggett via email.
