Dr Popovic 'wows' audience

Over 250 people from the Gisbourne region packed out the Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village to hear fascinating tips from Doctor Helena Popovic on how to tackle the worst that dementia can throw at a family. She is the author of 'In Search of My Father', the story of a daughter's determination to fight her father's dementia.

Living in Sydney, Doctor Popovic was in New Zealand to help mark the Neurological Foundation's Brain Awareness Week and gave the Gisborne audience her top 20 'brain booster' tips based on her experiences in caring for her dad.
