Dementia on the Radio – ABC 891 with Ali Clarke

Ali Clarke & Brett Partington  - ABC 891 Radio Studio

Ali Clarke & Brett Partington – ABC 891 Studio

Radio certainly gets the heart pumping and adrenaline going. You go from 0-100 in a matter of seconds.

The studio is huge and there is a massive control booth.

Ali was absolutely lovely and steered me thru well. I certainly have massive respect for people on radio. It is not for the faint hearted.

All that aside – Even though I was really nervous I hopefully was able to communicate some key messages through and shed some light on dementia.

I ticked off everything I wanted to achieve:

1. Talk about the fabulous Dementia Downunder members.

2. Meet Ali , get a pic with her and survive the interview.

3. Explain why dementia is different and talk about the role of families.

4. Give some positives amongst a lot of doom and gloom.

Time for a really strong coffee ahhhhhhh….Another really big challenge overcome.
