How does it feel when someone you love develops dementia? How do you cope with the shock, the stress and the grief? Can you be sure that you and your family will receive the support you need? In Telling Tales About Dementia, thirty carers from different backgrounds and in different circumstances share their experiences of caring for a parent, partner or friend with dementia. They speak from the heart about love and loss: 'I still find it hard to believe that Alzheimer's has happened to us,' writes one contributor, 'as if we were sent the wrong script.' The stories told here vividly reflect the tragedy of dementia, the gravity of loss, and instances of unsatisfactory diagnosis, treatment and care. But they contain hope and optimism too: clear indications that the quality of people's lives can be enhanced by sensitive support services, by improved understanding of the impact of dementia, by recognising the importance of valuing us all as human beings, and by embracing and sustaining the connections between us. This unique collection of personal accounts will be an engaging read for anyone affected by dementia in a personal or professional context, including relatives of people with dementia, social workers, medical practitioners and care staff.

Expert Reviews

  • Mr. James Ashwell, Founder of Unforgettable
    A powerful collection of stories

    Mr. James Ashwell, Founder of Unforgettable

    I didn’t read enough about dementia when I was a carer but I have since, and I’ve found both fact and fiction a very powerful way to help me make sense of my own journey, and others too. This collection of factual stories from carers is beautifully written by an author who's mother had dementia. It contains many pertinent experiences and anecdotes which other carers will relate too.
