Read about our journey with Mum, from the early stages of her illness through to her subsequent death.

About the Just Be Dementia Friendly website

Following our Mum’s illness and subsequent death from dementia with Lewy bodies, I started the ‘Just Be Dementia Friendly’ campaign to raise awareness about dementia in general but specifically about Lewy body dementia.

This website includes lots of information about dementia but also includes the story of our journey with Mum throughout her illness.

In addition to creating this website, I have also written a book charting our journey, which includes all the key information you will need if you or a loved one is affected by a Lewy body dementia. Information, sadly, we often learnt far to late.


I have also created the Just Be Dementia Friendly Facebook page.

I hope you find the information included on this website useful.
