I would like a paper copy to review. It has been concerning that my husband with dementia hasn’t been seen to assess his dementia. He is on memory tablets. I would have thought he should be monitored at least once a year if not monthly.

I would also like to review this book. My mother was diagnosed with the condition a few years ago. I need to keep abreast and build up with as much knowledge as possible. Thank you

I'd be happy to read & review the book, I have been diagnosed with early onset dementia, mid 50s. I go to singing for the brain every fortnight where I'm mistaken for a carer🤣

I would so love to possibly be a part of the Dementia review people on this book. I am a PLWD since 2016 and would love to review a copy on paper if it is possible, please. Living in Northern Ireland, we do not get to many opportunities to participate in projects such as this.
Many Thanks,

I would be really interested in reading this and giving feedback. My husband has Mixed Dementia- Vascular and Alzheimer’s. He was diagnosed 2 years ago but was showing signs before then however we were unable to get an earlier diagnosis due to Covid. I feel that I have some experience of caring for someone with this awful disease. He also has an ileostomy and had a heart attack last July .
Thank you

Wow, what a response! Thank you so much everyone - it sounds like this book is an important one that many of you want to read.

In the meantime, the magazine team look forward to welcoming any comments about this book before 4 March for the next 'book group' article.

Thanks again everyone for offering to review this one :)

As @HarrietD has said, the offer is now closed. But can I make a suggestion? For a week or two read a lot of the posts on this forum - it's amazing how much you can learn and how many tips you can pick up about this thing our loved ones are challenged with. There are many knowledgeable members here that I've learned from. 🙂
