Author June Andrews articulates the complexities of life with dementia in a way that is easy to understand.

Written with minimal jargon and medical terminology, her book offers in-depth explanation of the issues and symptoms associated with dementia. But what makes it special is that it offers realistic and achievable solutions to diverse problems for people with dementia, as well as their carers and health professionals.

It explores dementia and its onset in an honest, open way that manages to avoid being scary. Using a reassuring tone, it navigates readers through the diagnosis and the treatment options available, and encourages them to read on and gain as much information as possible. While it is realistic about the difficulties of living with dementia, it is packed with helpful ideas and suggestions, enabling the reader to see beyond the diagnosis to understand the lived experience.
