You may recall Kathy Ryan, from Tipperary, who has Early Onset Alzheimer’s.
Kathy and her sons Andrew and Matt featured in a viral video last year (top) in which they called for more Government support for dementia care at home.
Kathy also spoke at a music and spoken word event in the Sugar Club last year, called Alz Talks and organised by The Alzheimer Society of Ireland.
At the event, Kathy detailed her experience of living with Alzheimer’s.
Today, she has an update in the video above.
Meanwhile, a petition calling for the Government to invest €40million into community supports for people with dementia can be signed here
