Selected for Reading Well for Dementia 2024: endorsed by health experts, charities and people affected by dementia.

Adults are being increasingly diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), and this book provides strategies for concerned individuals to help slow the onset of the condition. Around 50% of adults with MCI go on to develop dementia, but research shows that self-help through early intervention and preventative measures can hugely slow this down.

The self-help measures in this book include memory aids, health and lifestyle changes, activities, therapies and technological aids. All of them are known to improve cognition and can be incorporated into daily life. Every measure is firmly based in current research, and this book is also applicable to those with early-stage dementia wishing to delay the onset of more severe cognitive impairment.

Given the paramount importance of early intervention to prevent cognitive impairment worsening, this book is essential reading for any older individual wanting the best strategies to help with how to do this in practice.

Press Reviews

  • Jackie Pool, Director of Memory Care, Sunrise Senior Living UK

    Mary Jordan's book is essential reading for those who are living with long term and progressive Mild Cognitive Impairment - a condition that is neither a disease nor dementia but which causes similar functional difficulties. It is written clearly as a self-help guide, with evidence based theory and practical, achievable solutions to managing memory loss and reducing the risk of dementia.
  • Dr Nori Graham, Vice President of the Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Disease International

    Let's suppose you have some memory loss but have been told that you do not have dementia. Or you are just getting older. This is the book for you. It is packed with sensible, easy to understand and invaluable advice on how to keep physically and mentally fit as you age.
