You left the doctor's surgery before you could ask the things you really wanted to know.
You've googled your question about dementia and had 75 answers, all contradicting each other.
You asked your best friend - but they looked at you strangely.

You have so many questions, but no idea where to start finding the answers. Here they are. In this book you'll find the definitive, expert responses to all your FAQs: On Dementia. No question is too simple, too embarrassing, too rude or too offbeat to be included, and each one has been asked by thousands of people just like you.

Will my partner stop loving me now they have dementia?
Does my mum have to go into a home now?
Is dementia a terminal illness?

All these questions, and hundreds more, are covered in this short but powerful, helpful, practical guide to understanding the nature, and impact, of dementia. Read at your leisure, or dip in and out when you most need the support or to shine a light on the issues and concerns that are making you uncomfortable or unhappy, and to bring them out of the shadows so you can understand and accept them.
