Description
IMG_7125 Patrick Ettenes

Patrick Ettenes is living with HIV and early onset, frontal lobe atrophy, dementia, the youngest person diagnosed in the UK with the particular diagnoses. He campaigns to raise understanding and awareness around these diseases. Patrick has spoken about his experiences and is the founder of the LGBT Dementia Network and winner of the 2019 National Diversity Award for LGBT Role Model of the Year.  Patrick has made a commitment to dedicate much of his time to support other LGBT people affected by dementia. He wishes to share his experiences as widely as possible in the hope that this will empower others to access the support that they need and to help organisations to support those who may be living alone or who come from other seldom-heard groups.
