Dementia: the one-stop guide
Dementia: the one-stop guide 
by Professor June Andrews
Practical advice for families, professionals, and people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Published February 2015

Across the world 44.4 million people are living with dementia – and hundreds of millions of families, friends and carers are affected. There is no cure, and the symptoms, from memory loss to hallucinations, can be disturbing for everyone involved. With shocking stories in the news about care homes and public services under pressure, for many people the prospect of Alzheimer’s or other form of dementia is terrifying. Some problems in dementia can be delayed or avoided altogether. The biggest challenge for everyone is finding out how to live as well as possible when dementia strikes.

In Dementia: the one-stop guide, international dementia care expert Professor June Andrews sets out to empower families, people living with dementia and those closest to them. Drawing on decades of experience and the latest research into the illness she explains what really makes a difference in the life of a person with dementia. June believes that there are two very different routes following a dementia diagnosis: staying well as long as possible or going downhill faster than you need.
