“Invaluable insight”

An illustrated book of real-life stories of people with dementia as told by their carers has been written by Gina Awad.  The stories in the book, United: Caring for our loved ones living with dementia, described as “humorous, heart-warming and often heart-breaking”, reflect on situations like receiving a diagnosis, meaningful engagement and peer support.  Illustrated by Tony Husband, the book is described as a “compelling read” by Alzheimer’s Society CEO Kate Lee.  “The insight and ‘tips’ were invaluable and many chimed with me as challenges (and opportunities!) I faced with my own mum,” Lee said.  For more reviews of the book, go to Amazon.
