Description - Dementia Positive by John Killick

This book is not about the past, which has gone. Or the future, which is uncertain. But it is for those who want to improve the lives of people with dementia and themselves in the Here and Now. The book is not written by an expert but by a man seeking to find new approaches concerning dementia who wishes to share his discoveries.

Killick steers clear of any sort of medical terminology and instead nurtures the often neglected aspects of dementia, thereby reinforcing to the reader that these are of no lesser importance.

In recognition that we are all in this together, Killick gives equal prominence to quotations from, and conversations with, people with dementia and their carers.
