Get Men Talking: with Robbie Savage
Episode 15 – Get Men Talking with Robbie Savage
To mark the upcoming Father’s Day in the UK, we’ll be focusing each and every episode in June on men’s grief. From grief stories and mental health to fatherhood, we have a number of exciting episodes lined up with some fantastic advocates for men’s grief.
This week we’re joined by former footballer, pundit and presenter Robbie Savage, who’s dad Colin died from Pick’s disease – a form of dementia – in 2012.
In this episode, Robbie shared an insight into life growing up in his family and his dad’s personal journey after being diagnosed with Pick’s disease at such an early age.
We talked about how Robbie coped with the diagnosis and watching his dad deteriorate over time, and his own experience with grief guilt.
He talks about his work with Sport United Against Dementia, his favourite memory he has of his dad and gives advice for anyone else in a similar situation.
