Sadly opera singer Cara O’Sullivan passed away earlier this week at the age of 59, the Soprano was only diagnosed with early on-set dementia in 2018 - thankfully not everyone who has this condition has such a sad outcome, lots of people live with dementia quite well. Clare chats to Kathleen Quinlan, who is 56 and living with dementia, and ASI Dementia Adviser Amy Murphy
