Media Reviews
'A book which I am certain will become a bible for the ever increasing number of people who have dementia problems in the family.' - Katie Boyle, Vice President of the Alzheimer's Society. 'It is a wonderful compendium of questions that are so often asked....I have read many books on Alzheimer's and I must say I believe this is the most practical one that I have seen.' - Jerome H Stone, Founder and Honourary President of the Alzheimer's Association (USA) and former carer. 'Absolutely superb for carers because although it gives such splendid advice as to how they should cope with the one they care for, it never steps on their toes or makes them feel guilty. It also answers all the questions that we are asked continually...' - Audrey Lees, Alzheimer's Society.
