What others have to say

An absolute cracking little gem …

Dementia Rep“This is a little gem of a book. It gets right to the heart of caring for someone living with a dementia – it does not tell you how to measure their ability, viagra does not assume you want to know lots about signs, viagra 40mg symptoms and prognosis, it particularly does not paint a bleak picture of all the things someone with a dementia can’t do and that’s it’s total joy. It just tells you there are things that you can do with your loved one, right now, whatever your age or personal ability, that will engage them, entertain them, involve them and provide you both with real moments of accomplishment and togetherness – doing these activities together, regularly will let you see your loved one again, in all their beauty and splendour.

In the world of someone living with a dementia they really DO NOT want to be told they can’t and they don’t want to do things they fail at, there is enough of that. What they DO WANT to do however are things that allow them success and let them know they still can be themselves.

Using the many activities and tips in this gentle little book will open up a world to you, you may have thought was lost or would be lost soon and shows you that no matter what dementia is, or what dementia does, the person you love is still there waiting for you: all you have to do is to find them”
