Oh Dear What Can the Matter Be: A Positive View of Dementia
by Felicity Jaff
Felicity Jaffs aim in writing this book is to send out helpful advice on how to cope with dementia from her personal experience.
She has made something first-rate, genuinely informative and useful, and enormously human, with dignity and humour, including many practical ideas.
One gets the feeling that all along she is remembering and expressing what she remembers, not necessarily for her benefit, but for the benefit of a wider community.
This book will inspire the families and carers of dementia suffers as it deals with dementia in a positive and happy way.About the Author
