‘Many assume that living with dementia is one long term steady decline. Jennifer’s insightful book debunks that myth.’ – Jeremy Hughes, Chief Executive, Alzheimer's Society

Jennifer Bute was a highly qualified senior doctor in a large clinical practice, whose patients included those with dementia. Then she began to notice symptoms in herself. She was finally given a diagnosis of Young Onset Dementia in 2009.

After resigning as a GP, she resolved to explore what could be done to slow the progress of dementia. The aim of this practical book is to help people who are living with dementia and to give hope to those who are with them on the dementia journey.

Jennifer believes that her dementia is an opportunity as well as a challenge. Her important insights are that the person ‘inside’ remains and can be reached, even when masked by the condition, and that spirituality rises as cognition becomes limited.

‘The observant physician shines through in Dr Bute's book, while her practical advice reveals the resourcefulness of an inventor. Alzheimer’s disease has surely met one of its toughest ever adversaries!’ – Peter Garrard, Professor of Neurology, University of London
