Rarely has a book made such a difference to me than this one. When I was having tests and assessments which resulted in a dementia diagnosis this book was my supporting prop. It removed my fear and gave me answers to the questions I confronted. An essential book for all.
Dr Amanda Thompsell, Consultant Old Age Psychiatrist, Chair for the Old Age Faculty, Royal College of Psychiatrists
A diagnosis of dementia always provokes many questions. The Pocket Guide to Dementia provides the answers straightforwardly, engagingly and accessibly, dealing with both the medical science and the day-to-day practicalities, with helpful tips and case histories. I heartily recommend this well-written book to people with dementia and those that love them.

This is the book I wish I'd had while accompanying my mother on her long dementia journey. The information we were desperate for is here, the questions we asked are answered - clearly, simply, and with some great practical tips. It could make all the difference to caregivers.
Baroness Elaine Murphy, Vice President of the Alzheimer's Society
If you are struggling with the puzzling behaviours of an older relative, neighbour or one of your patients or clients who you think may have dementia, this factual and plainly written guide is the perfect introduction, updated to provide really practical current advice.
Angela Rippon, CBE
This "pocket" sized guide packs a full sized punch. It answers in clear terms all the important questions about dementia. Dispels much of the stigma and misunderstanding associated with the disease. Offers practical guidance and support, and will be especially valuable to those who are carers.
