The Human Story Behind A Diagnosis of Dementia

Dementia: From the Heart

Norman McNamara aged 54 tells us about his experience of Lewy Body Dementia. This powerful video should be watched by health professionals working with people with Dementia. By researchers contributing to the search for more effective treatments. And maybe by everyone.


  1. Thank you for making me aware of this video Dr Marley and of course many thanks to Norman McNamara for opening his heart – his closing comment brought tears to my eyes.

    I work in mental health and his words particularly resonate with me. It is true that many of my thoughts and opinions go against the grain of modern day psychiatric thinking/beliefs of the ‘treatment’ of those who suffer dementia and I will email you later.

    I wonder if you might have read this:

  2. Hi Anna,

    Thanks – its a powerful video and I agree Norman McNamara has been very courageous to open up in this way and I think it will have a profound impact on many people (myself included).
    I’ve looked at the link and again that is a very moving piece.
