Reason you chose this book

Just read it and you'll see. The pictures and words sum it up and there is so much that you can take from this with regards understanding, communication and empathy.


It is not only the words but the pictures that are both moving and inspirational in this book. Every page has a message, and it also helps us to understand more about dementia and how it affects those around us. I would say this is a must for all healthcare professionals. This is education in it's purest form and probably one of the best ways of learning about the condition, from those who have it. It's also very easy to dip in and out of and keep coming back to and you will continue to learn from it.
