This book describes how a new understanding of dementia is leading to better care, helping to maintain the personality of the sufferer.

It also offers practical, day to day advice from a hands-on perspective, using a narrative structure.

It follows the story of an older couple, Linda and Frank.

Frank develops dementia. The story covers the first, early signs and the development of the disease; the couple's struggle to manage and find help, the wife's failing health and the search for a suitable care home, and life after Frank goes to live in the home.

An index at the back of the book allows readers to look up help on specific topics.

Throughout, the narrative keeps a clear Christian perspective.

For example, Linda finds that singing familiar hymns as she dusts around the house not only helps her feel better, but lifts Frank's spirits, too, and he will sometimes join in.

Each chapter concludes with a short section of devotions for carers and sufferers.
