“This is an excellent guide for anyone who has a family member or friend suffering with dementia. Really helpful advice & explanations on why certain behaviours happen & how to cope with them. The best bit about this book is it is easy to read – short chapters & clearly written. It’s also helpful to have sections for making notes about your own circumstances, the idea being that you have the day to day information to take to a doctor if needed.
The book truly does “find the light” in all stages of that journey. It is reassuring for someone who has little or no experience with dementia to know that as a carer they are not alone, as quotes & comments from real life people are included throughout. It is a very positive book & has real tips & techniques for dealing with the situation of having a loved one suffering from such a cruel disease.” –

“This little book is a life saver for people who have dementia and their caregivers,
families and friends. I think it should be given out by every professional
who gives the initial diagnosis. People need something to grasp, and the
sensitivity, simplicity and emotion contained in this book may help them cope better.”-
