‘Talkin’ About Neurodegeneration’ – Presented by Karen Meenan 14 – 06 – 2021

Young Onset Dementia (YOD) is the definition of a dementia diagnosis for somebody younger than 65 years old which affects approximately 10% of all people diagnosed with dementia in Ireland.  Kathleen Quinlan who has YOD speaks to Professor Craig Ritchie of Brain Health Scotland, Órla Horn, founder of the Forget-Me-Nots dementia-inclusive choir and Dr Shane Cassidy founder of Neurolinks about what it is like living with this disease.  Brilliant music from Enya to Mozart and some wonderful poetry thrown in for good measure!
