A very helpful read for family and carers of those with Intellectual Disabilities facing a possible diagnosis of dementia. Whilst alerting the reader to other health issues, it provides strategies for communicating, partnering and improving outcomes with an emphasis on quality of life. This is a guide that warrants more than one read.
Laura Finnan-Cowan, Self-Directed Support Manager, Dementia in Scotland Winter 2017 issue
[...] books like this and the information they contain are crucial. [...] It is essential that we raise awareness of the potential links between dementia and learning disabilities so that people and their families get the information and support they need. This book is an excellent example of how to do this.
