About this work


Across the world, 44 million people live with dementia. Hundreds of millions of people are affected by the dementia of parents, partners, siblings or friends. And as much of the world struggles with an aging population, dementia is set to become ever more of a challenge for societies and individuals. But most people who are diagnosed, or who are dealing with the diagnosis of a loved one, feel as though they are alone. This book fills the gap, providing practical information and support for living with, or caring for, Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. With clear and sensible information about recognising symptoms, getting help, managing financially, staying at home, treatment, being a carer and staying positive, this guide will help those with dementia and their families to make sure that they can stay well and happy as long as possible. Includes a foreword by Dame Judi Dench.
