Tommy Foster answers our questions
Q&A: Tommy Foster
Tommy Foster, who has mixed dementia and lives in Ballymena, answers our questions.
What changed most after your diagnosis?
What would you take to your desert island?
How has Alzheimer's Society helped you?
Working with the Society helps reassure me that I'm not alone with my illness. The Ballymena and Antrim Men's Friendship Group gives me an added purpose. If you like to constantly press forward and try new things, with the added social togetherness of the group, it really leaves one feeling less alone.
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
What is your most treasured possession?
Family would be my answer. My feelings and desires towards them are a constant strength to me, as I know today that their memories will always be that of who I am here and now, and not of what the dementia may eventually claim.
