I am excited to welcome Dominican-born Rianna Patterson. Rianna is a multi-award winning TEDx speaker and the Founder of the Dominica Dementia Foundation. In this episode we learn about dementia, Rianna’s journey, and about the island of Dominica.
Rianna founded Dominica Dementia Foundation at age 18 in memory of her grandfather who passed away from dementia. This organization is a youth-led dementia charity that raises awareness of dementia, provides emotional support to the families and caretakers, as well as facilitates research towards dementia.
