Key Features

  • Contains tips for everyday struggles
  • Practical advice to help them live well
  • Support for anyone who cares for someone with dementia

This book is for the silent army of unpaid carers who support people living with dementia.

We answer the questions you want to know, like:

  • Is it ever okay to lie to someone with dementia?
  • What’s the best way to cope with boredom, anger or repetition?
  • How can I keep on caring when nothing seems to go right?

Written by dementia specialists and carers here at Unforgettable, this book has been created with an understanding of what carers and people with dementia go through, as James, Unforgettable founder explains:

'I know how hard it is to care for a loved one with dementia,' says James. 'My mum was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in her fifties and I cared for her for five long years. At times, I felt completely overwhelmed. Looking after her wasn’t only physically and emotionally draining, it was also isolating. I often felt very lonely.

'However, having spoken to hundreds of people since then I realise I wasn’t alone at all. Not only do we all experience the same kind of feelings — namely fear, guilt, worry, exhaustion and sadness — we also experience many of the same practical challenges too. That’s why I founded Unforgettable and why we’ve compiled this book for anyone affected by dementia — carers, family members or friends.

"'This is the book I wish I’d had. It’s designed to help you with all aspects of daily life, to offer you some new ideas based on experience, and to remind you that you’re doing a great job under very difficult circumstances.'

So whether you’re just starting out, or already looking after a loved one with dementia, you’ll find all the essential information you need in this down-to-earth little handbook. From dealing with challenging behaviour, to sorting out financial and legal issues or searching for answers to tricky, ethical dilemmas, this book provides you with much-needed advice.
