About Me and the Blog

My name is Anna Iris Nogueira Nicolau, I am Brazilian, 23 years old and since I can remember I have consumed a beautiful affair with writing, drawing and an interest in vulnerable people.

Since then  I have achieved a BSc (Hons) Psychology degree and embarked on a fascinating adventure as a live-in full time Dementia Care Co-ordinator to a 75-year old lady with Alzheimer’s disease.

I will remain in this post for the next year and hope to share some of my fascinating dementia-provoked most humourous, depressing and  intriguing anecdotes. As I acquire more knowledge about her condition I will try to provide a more detailed explanation of her behaviours and how I dealt with them. I will welcome contributing comments.

Meanwhile with every few posts I also intend on documenting her life through an ambitious drawing project.
