The DementiaLiving team talks to the delightful Julie Huntley. Julie is a woman who is thriving on passion and purpose as she contributes her incredible knowledge based on her own personal experience to NoosaCare’s Dementia Friendly Community Advisory Board.
Julie has been working and volunteering in administrative and community service roles for most of her life. She is passionate about our Noosa community and in particular, the importance of continuing to learn new skills, explore and challenge ourselves.
About 10 years ago, Julie’s parents began to noticeably age and become less mobile. Not long after that, her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease. She researched, observed and liaised with family and health care professionals in order to understand as much as she could to determine how best to care and support her Mum.
Tune in to hear Julie talk about her experience with her mum and the amazing care she receives in Brisbane, some creations she has put together so that healthcare teams can connect with her mum on a more personal level and her vision going forward for those living with dementia. Julie is all passion and purpose and we are so fortunate to have her on the advisory board. Enjoy the podcast!
