Across the world, 44.4 million people live with dementia. Hundreds of millions of people are affected by the dementia of parents, partners, siblings or friends. And as much of the world struggles with an aging population, dementia is set to become ever more of a challenge for societies and individuals. But still, most people who are diagnosed, or who are dealing with the diagnosis of a loved one, feel as though they are alone. Dementia: The One-Stop Guide aims to fill this gap, providing practical information and support for living with, or caring for, dementia. With clear and sensible information about recognising symptoms, getting help, managing financially, staying at home, treatment, being a carer and staying positive, this guide will help those with dementia and their families to make sure that they can stay well and happy as long as possible.

Review:

Exactly what is needed. Sensible advice from someone who really knows what she is talking about - I wish I'd had this book when my father was stricken with dementia. * John Humphrys * So clear and practical ... this book will help families and friends of people with dementia all over the world, and be a support to those professionals who work to improve their difficult journey. -- Dame Judi Dench Professor Andrews brings together science, practice and lived experience of dementia into an invaluable resource ... In a very accessible, down-to-earth and human style, Professor Andrews outlines what you need to know and do to stay well as long as possible ... I wish I'd had this book on my caring journey ... the book has given me clarity, information and options for planning ahead * Psychologist * June Andrews articulates the complexities of life with dementia in a way that is easy to understand. Written with minimal jargon and medical terminology, her book offers in-depth explanation of the issues and symptoms associated with dementia. But what makes it really special is that it offers realistic and achievable solutions to diverse problems for people with dementia, as well as their carers and health professionals. It explores dementia and its onset in an honest, open way that manages to avoid being scary. Using a reassuring tone, it navigates readers through the diagnosis and the treatment options available, and encourages them to read on and gain as much information as possible ... It is packed with helpful ideas and suggestions ... I would highly recommend it. * Nursing Times * A valuable resource * Nursing Older People * With characteristic flare and a pragmatic approach, June manages to cut through the current narrative on dementia and reminds us that we are there for the benefit of people with dementia, our patients and their families and carers ... This book contains a wealth of information ... It is an extraordinary, useful thing for anyone concerned with dementia care whether it be from personal experience (direct or indirect) professional, policy or politics. -- Alistair Burns, National Clinical Director for Dementia, NHS England
