Wendy is a white woman in her 60s. She has short grey hair and green eyes. She is smiling. Wendy is sat on a sofa and is wearing a mustard yellow jumper.

We are saddened to hear of the death of Wendy Mitchell, dementia campaigner and bestselling author, at 68 years old.

An incredible legacy has been left by Wendy, through her tireless campaign work, her daily blogs – Which me am I Today, and her books which explore the many ways that Alzheimer’s and dementia affects the person living with the illness, while offering advice.

In 2018 and in 2022, Wendy was a guest speaker at the BRACE annual conference where she shared her words of wisdom.

BRACE Dementia Research CEO, Chris Williams said:

"Wendy Mitchell was an incredible woman who has left a lasting impact in the world."

"She generously shared her knowledge and insight into Alzheimer’s with people across the UK, breaking down stigma, offering comfort and better understanding of the illness for families and, also professionals working with people with dementia. "

To quote Wendy Mitchell:

'Talking is the most powerful thing you can do when you get the dementia diagnosis.’

Thank you, Wendy, for talking so openly about dementia. Our thoughts are with her daughters, friends, loved ones and all who knew her.
