A REVOLUTIONARY “road map” to dementia that helps sufferers communicate with their loved ones as the illness progresses has been hailed a breakthrough in the care of the elderly.

The guide, Words For A Journey: The Art Of Being With Dementia, which is already being used by doctors in Japan, outlines how dementia patients relate to the world and how best to relate to them.
Experts say it will give those with a new diagnosis hope that they can continue independently for as long as possible and encourage them to see the disease as a journey rather than the end of their lives.
