MEDIA REVIEWS

"...clearly organised to cover the most challenging aspects of communication with a person with dementia. The self-check sections in each chapter are good for establishing that the text has been understood correctly. There are excellent examples of activities and explanations of significant historical events. This is clearly an important topic and this is a fine book for anyone who wishes to further their understanding."
-Judge at the 2015 BMA Medical Book Awards
