‘Like the finest travel writing or reportage, transport[s] the reader to another world that they may or may not visit one day . . . A marvellous tour of insights’ The Times

What can a diseased brain tell us about being human, living our own lives better and helping those with dementia get the best from theirs? When Wendy Mitchell was diagnosed with young-onset dementia at the age of fifty-eight, her brain was overwhelmed with images of the last stages of the disease – those familiar tropes, shortcuts and clichés that we are fed by the media, or even our own health professionals. But her diagnosis far from represented the end of her life. Instead, it was the start of a very different one.

Wise, practical and life affirming, What I Wish People Knew About Dementia combines anecdotes, research and Wendy Mitchell’s own brilliant wit and wisdom to tell readers exactly what she wishes they knew about dementia. ‘Inspirational . . . Shows that not all is lost when people lose their memories’ Mail on Sunday

‘Wendy Mitchell is a life-saver’ Frances Wilson, author of Burning Man
