'If you want to recommend
one book to a carer of someone with dementia, recommend this one.' Read
Rachel Wooller, Senior social
worker. Community-Care Magazine.
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.'
