    A valuable resource for family and friends who find themselves taking on the mantle of looking after someone with dementia. The range of specialists provide a comprehensive resource of clinical information, advice, and guidance.
  • Emma Crozier, Trustee of Dementia UK, Business consultant and coach
    What a fantastic resource for families living with dementia. One of the hardest things for our family was feeling we were left to our own devices to deal with our new (ever-changing) normal as Dad's Young Onset Dementia evolved over time. The real-life stories help to reassure readers that they are not alone. The expert commentary gives practical advice on how to adapt family communication, activities, and expectations to improve the experience of living with dementia for everyone
