Even after 10 years, I still don’t understand some British customs 😉
Why did you choose to work in dementia?
Because I am interested in how something that happens in the brain can affect our lives so much that people struggle doing everyday tasks that we take for granted, such as buying a chocolate bar or making a hot tea.
