About the AuthorStephen Miller is a speech and language therapist with a particular interest in dementia and the ways in which it can affect communication. As a student in the 1970s he worked in hospitals which were home to people with dementia. Even then he was struck by the fact that no effort was made to help patients to express their wishes or feelings or indeed to provide any stimulation for them at all. In the course of his work, happily in far more enlightened times, he worked with families, helping them to find ways of improving communication and reducing stress and frustration all round. He also gave talks to people recently diagnosed with dementia and their carers. In addition he has done voluntary work for Alzheimer Scotland.
