Hilary Doxford (Vice-Chairperson)
In December 2012, at the age of 53 Hilary was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. She is keen to do all she can to assist in finding a cure for dementia and volunteers for the Alzheimer’s Society in England as part of their research network and user involvement programme.
She is still working and intends to continue working for as long as possible to show that people with dementia can still make a valuable contribution to their organisation.
Hilary is also a member of the World Dementia Council, and indeed was the first person living with dementia to join, in January 2015.
At home she enjoys anything to do with archaeology and she and her husband love the sea and walking their dog Tilly.
Hilary joined the EWGPWD in October 2014, nominated by the Alzheimer's Society.
