United: Caring for our loved ones living with dementia (Paperback)

£9.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

A new illustrated book that captures the real life tales of people with dementia, and from the loved ones and professional carers who support them.



Stories from families living with the realities of dementia are illustrated in a humorous but moving style and will be relatable and supportive for anyone touched by dementia in their lives.



The stories reflect on:

- The heart-wrenching decision to move a loved one to a care home and the guilt and emotions that accompany this

- The behavioural changes that accompany the different stages of this disease

- The impact of receiving a diagnosis

- Caring for elderly parents when dementia complicates their ability to look after each other

- Planning ahead for the imminent future when your loved one may lose the capacity to make decisions

- The realities of caring for someone with young onset dementia

- The loneliness and isolation of caring and the importance of peer support

- The worry and guilt around long-distance caring

- Making time for positive hobbies and routines

- Facing dementia in public when you are a well-known figure
