Grace Dent item on Dementia

I only see Gracw Dent as a non smiling , highly critical, strict Masterchef judge. Never has there been more truth in the saying nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors.

A very moving excerpt from her book.

I had not even heard of Grace Dent so came to this completely fresh and not knowing what to expect. There are echoes of my own childhood and my experience of dementia as it affected my Mam and continues to affect my wife.

I've listened to Grace Dent articles on the radio and thought she had an affinity with the people she interviewed.
I agree with @Grannie G, walking in someone else's shoes can always advance our knowledge and understanding of other people's challenges.

I have/had no idea who Grace Dent was/is until your post caught my eye and so glad it did in spite of the tears it brought. Heartbreaking extract wonderfully written, thank you for sharing
