This is the book I have wanted for many years - to give to friends outside the field (especially other professionals) to tell succinctly and compellingly the other side of the story of dementia. And although John says he's not addressing dementia care professionals, it is equally valuable for them. - SUE BENSON, THE JOURNAL OF DEMENTIA CARE
Dementia is a mysterious condition. It frightens many of us. When we are confronted with someone with it we feel helpless. This is not how it has to be.
John Killick, in this thought-provoking and warm-hearted book, challenges these assumptions. He shows us ways in which we can help, and make lives better for all concerned.
He writes out of two decades of experience of working as a writer with people with dementia and their carers, friends and supporters. He also shares with us the views of many of the people he has encountered on his journey.

I have just got back from helping my darling mum with her breakfast. Her eyes never left me and it looked like someone had switched a light on behind them. She was so beautiful - how can anyone experience so much where no words are used? How lucky I am! CAROLINE BROWN
