This Mother’s Day, we’re sharing your stories

This Mother’s Day, we’re sharing the incredible stories of Shobna Gulati and Suzy Webster.

 

We were delighted when Shobna Gulati recorded a podcast with us for our virtual event last year, Every Small Step.

 

Shobna is an award-winning actor, dancer, choreographer and presenter, and recently published ‘Remember me? Discovering My Mother as She Lost Her Memory’; a memoir on losing her mother to dementia.

 

In the podcast, Shobna speaks to Nimisha, who cares for her grandmother, about the highs and lows of their caring experiences and shares an insight into some of the challenges family carers face on a daily basis.

 

Here’s an excerpt from Shobna’s podcast. To listen to the full episode, you can subscribe to the Dementia Carers Count podcast on any of the following platforms: Apple Podcasts, Breaker, Spotify, Radio Public, Pocket Casts and Google Podcasts.

 

 

Suzy spoke to us about her experience of caring for her mother, who has a diagnosis of hydrocephalus and Alzheimer’s Disease. Suzy won the award for An Exceptional Contribution by a Family Carer at last year’s Dementia Care Awards. An award which was advocated and sponsored by Dementia Carers Count. We are incredibly grateful to Suzy for sharing her story with us.
