The Right To Be Me
As part of our CARE MATTERS Podcast series, Sustainable Care colleague, Maria Cheshire-Allen (Researcher, at Swansea University) was joined by Irene Mortimer, (Swansea Carers Centre) and Jude Dale, (Dementia Friendly Swansea) to discuss how the concept of wellbeing as an enduring ideal defining what it means to live a ‘good life’ interacts with how care in older age is understood and experienced. Together, they reflect on whether, and how the concept translates into everyday experience or the ‘right to be me’ for family carers of older people living with dementia.
