My Admiral Nurse, Rachel, is an inspiration
In all of this, I have learnt that I must make time for myself. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression since I was 18 years old and I really value the importance of self-care in my life.
It was our dementia specialist Admiral Nurse, Rachel, who encouraged me to start focusing on myself again. She talked to me about the honest reality of living with dementia and reminded me that I need something to fall back on when Mum eventually passes away.
I found Rachel so inspiring that I enrolled in an Adult Nursing degree at the University of Huddersfield and am now a first-year student. Rachel has been so encouraging and supportive and has made me see that it is possible to have my own life too.
