Rachel Wooller, Senior social worker. Community-Care Magazine.

'I recommend this book to a number of different readers. Firstly and baldly, to patients in the early stages of their illness, who retain a degree of insight and are interested and brave enough to want to learn about a multitude of aspects of their likely future journey. Secondly, to all carers, both informal and professional, for whom this book offers invaluable insights into the various roles of being a carer. Thirdly, to all other aspiring and practicing colleagues in the field of dementia, if only to recommend it to patients and carers alike. In summary, this book should be found on the bookcase in every house, care home, institute and department working with and/or caring for older people with dementia.'         Read full review Walter Pierre Bouman, Consultant Psychiatrist for Older Adults

'This book is essential reading for any carer of someone with failing memory.'
