Caring for someone living with Dementia - a personal experience from Marcelline Russell Chair of Dementia Reference Group
We would like to pay tribute to Dave Sharman, one of the Dementia Reference group founding members, who sadly passed away on 28th April 2020.
A few words by Marcelline Russell, Chair of the Dementia Reference group:
By the time I met Dave via the Dementia Reference Group verbal communication was something he was beginning to struggle with but his warm, friendly smile and his willingness to be a part of something attempting to make Greenwich a more dementia inclusive, thereby a better place to live, made Dave a lovely person to have known.
I know that this willingness to give his time to causes aiming to improve the community was something that featured throughout Dave’s life and all of the members of the Dementia Reference Group who knew Dave feel very privileged to have done so.
He will be missed.
