This practical book is the result of Jenny Lewis's research and experience as a carer for her mother, who has suffered from senile dementia for fifteen years. Despite her mother's continually worsening condition, Jenny has always fostered an attitude of hope, and a determination to improve her mother's quality of life. In this book, she shares her advice. Jenny speaks about the importance of valuing and caring for the elderly in our society, of encouraging mobility and independence for as long as possible. There is an emphasis on the prevention of Alzheimer's and Dementia through nutrition, physical activity and maintaining a positive attitude to life, as well as suggestions on how to improve the health and well-being of those already suffering from these conditions. Jenny goes on to discuss residential care and nursing homes, and the importance of adopting a new approach towards caring for the elderly in our society. This encouraging guide includes practical suggestions that can easily be introduced into daily routines, such as recipes for nourishing soups and brain gym exercises.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book is a compass; it orientates you and shows you a way forward. I think it no exaggeration to say that each page unfolds nuggets of insight and understanding that gradually build a picture that takes a real step in redeeming our attitude to old age and this most distressing conditions... Reading this book, with its brisk and bright manner, you feel the warmth and compassion streaming off the page with thoughts that help us get a little closer to the old people needing help and care from those around them, to get through each day... Perhaps I was especially receptive to what Jenny Lewis had to tell me in her book, but as I write this review, I find my original perception undimmed: that it would benefit every household, every dwelling, to have a copy of this book available.' --Tom Raines, New View, Spring 2010
