Will I Still Be Me?

Finding a Continuing Sense of Self in the Lived Experience of Dementia

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Christine Bryden was diagnosed with dementia in 1995, but her experiences do not reflect the mainstream discourse of loss of self while living with dementia. In this book she explains why people with dementia have a meaningful and continuing sense of self and calls for a different understanding of dementia that results in greater inclusion.

RELATED TOPICS: Health, Mental Health
Christine Bryden was diagnosed with dementia in 1995 and since then has become the foremost dementia advocate, speaking at international conferences and campaigning for self-advocacy. She lives in Brisbane, Australia.
