Book DescriptionIn People with Dementia Speak Out, twenty-three people from diverse backgrounds share their experiences of living with dementia.The contributors are honest about the frustrations and fears they face, but overall there is remarkably little self-pity and a great deal of optimism. The personal accounts demonstrate that with the right support at the right time, and above all with opportunities to continue to contribute to society in a meaningful way, it is possible to live well with dementia. These fascinating stories bring to life the characters behind the collective term 'people with dementia', and show that each person with dementia is a unique individual with their own personality, history, beliefs, cultural affinities and sense of humour, and their own way of adapting to the disabilities and opportunities which this condition confers.This unique collection of personal testimonies will be reassuring and encouraging for those coming to terms with a diagnosis of dementia, for their families and carers, and is essential reading for health and social care professionals at all levels.
Editorial ReviewPeople with Dementia Speak Out is a celebration of people living, loving, learning, changing and growing with dementia. It is a rich and multi-dimensional collection of first-person accounts from people living with dementia. Each story combines people's reflections on their life stories - which are hugely diverse - woven together with accounts of their growing awareness of difficulties and the impact of dementia on their lives. These stories are about identities and how dementia becomes another aspect of people's lives - but not the only aspect.This collection has been thoughtfully edited by Lucy Whitman, who usefully shares her reflections on a complex editorial process that succeeds in retaining the diversity of experience, personality and language style that in turn helps to convey the realities - the highs and lows of how dementia is incorporated into people's lives and identities - and the sheer resilience with which people respond to such major life changes.
