"Learning how to live well with dementia can be a daunting task. June Andrews understands this and offers sensible, trustworthy advice."- Mary Schulz, Alzheimer Society of Canada
A practical guide to dealing with dementia by one of the world's leading experts.
Around the world, almost 50 million people have dementia, and hundreds of millions of people are affected by the dementia of loved ones. Unlike other books that look at this condition purely from the perspective of caretakers, When Someone You Know Has Dementia provides insight into what it feels like to have dementia, how you can deal with it, and what you can do to keep it at bay. Packed with practical tips for providing what people with dementia or Alzheimer's want and need, this guide will help ensure that they can stay well and happy as long as possible.
"The value of this book is apparent from Chapter 1, and in particular the offering of scenarios and how difficult they are for both patient and family. You might know intellectually that your demented mother will one day forget who you are, but it's quite another to actually experience this- so much more difficult than you imagined. You must be prepared for it, and this book helps you do exactly that." -Jay Ingram
