The Dementia Diaries : A Novel in Cartoons Hardback

Description

Longlisted for the School Library Association's Information Book Award 2017 - 'Over 12' category. Brie's Granddad has always been a serious man, never without a newspaper and knowing the answer to everything.

But now he keeps losing track of the conversation, and honestly, Brie doesn't really know how to speak to him.

At first, Fred was annoyed that Gramps had come to live with them, it meant he had to give up his room!

But then he starts to enjoy watching old films with him and spending time together... although there's the small problem of Gramps calling him Simon. Follow the stories of Brie, Fred, and other young carers as they try to understand and cope with their grandparents' dementia at all stages of the illness.

Adapted from true stories, and supplemented with fun activities and discussion ideas, this book for children aged approximately 7-14 cuts to the truth of the experience of dementia and tackles stigma with a warm and open perspective.
