Whether you are concerned for yourself or someone else, First Steps to living with Dementia will advise you about how it is diagnosed, conventional medical treatments and alternative remedies, the social and financial support available, and the lifestyle changes that can help prevent it.

Reviews

"Both of my parents suffered with Alzheimer's Disease. At times I felt overwhelmed and lost with the strain of it all and not knowing where to turn or who to turn to. If only I'd had Simon's book at my fingertips during those bleak years. It would have been a friendly, enlightening and informative guide through a very dark tunnel." -- Fiona Phillips
