Peter Berry is working alongside the MedicAlert team as our ambassador for dementia.

Peter is passionate about the importance of MedicAlert which allows people living with dementia to maintain their independence and continue enjoying their hobbies with peace of mind. Peter was diagnosed with dementia at the age of 50, and he has since used his passion to raise awareness of the condition, particularly in younger people.

"I was still able to cycle on my own but gradually becoming aware that I didn't feel so secure and thinking to myself that I really needed to find a solution to this problem."

Excerpt from Living Well With Dementia: Slow Puncture written by Peter Berry & Deb Bunt

In his role as MedicAlert Ambassador, he is dedicated to showing that 'life isn't over with dementia, it's just a little different'.

"Having a diagnosis of dementia means that so many things are taken away from you. One of the things for me was the independence of cycling alone and doing stuff on my own, without my friends and family having to worry.

That problem has now been 'cured' with my MedicAlert ID and membership.”
