Book Details

The essential guidebook to help in every aspect of your journey, whether dementia affects your loved one, friend or people you are caring for. What is dementia? Many of us live in fear of it, imagining the horror of losing our memories and our identities. But it does not need to terrify us. A good life can be lived with dementia. In this marvellously informative book, Rose Capp, aged-care specialist and educator, policy advisor and choir-director, tells us how. She shows us how to see the world from the perspectives of people living with dementia. She reveals the importance of loving engagement, of finding the right words and the best forms of communication. And she discusses how popular culture can help our understanding of dementia. Through her choir, we witness the extraordinary power of music to transform lives. Whether dementia affects your loved ones, your friends or people you are caring for, this is an essential book to guide you in taking the mystery out of this condition.
