Giving voice to those directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic

Helen Rochford-Brennan worked with Fiona Keogh to write about her experience of living with dementia during the COVID-19 pandemic. They discuss the additional difficulties faced by people with dementia including the effects of social isolation, increased anxiety and stress. They talk about how some people with dementia may have difficulty accessing services and supports, which is not helped by the invisibility of people with dementia in society.
