When a routine optician's appointment discovers a brain tumour that needs surgery, which leads to brain damage, Laura de Bono is propelled into a new unnerving world of mental and physical incapacity. Once simple tasks suddenly demand considerable thought and preparation.
In this immensely practical exploration of the challenges faced by those with dementia, the trauma of unexpected hospitalisation, the slow, painstaking road to recovery and adaptation to a new way of living are presented with candour and engaging humour.
Valuable insights from personal experience, to how to relate to, understand and care for those suffering dementia and similar conditions offer genuine hope and clarity in a subject that is often misunderstood.
