Sara Barsel is an advocate for people with dementia. The conversation focuses on how frightening the experiences can be when you start forgetting what it is you are trying to do or how to do it and how frustrations can be linked with violent behaviour. 

The Dementia Friendly Airports working group based in Minnesota that Sara heads up has influenced the Airline industry in the US to change their approach to the security process which can be overwhelming and not accessible.

In Sara’s view The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower gives people with dementia a dignified choice to be self-identified.
