    Hi everyone

    I cared for my mum for four years after she was diagnosed with Early onset dementia. She passed in 2013 at the age of 54. In the last few days of her life i promised I would write a book about our experiences and to honour her legacy. For help i came on this board and someone helped me edit. Now two years on I have finally released it.

    I have written the book not to make profit but to be of support to others who may have been through or going through a similar situation.

    What a lovely tribute to your Mum. Hopefully I get to read it soon as my Mum and I are at the early stages of this journey
