Glenn Rees AM, Chief Executive Officer | Alzheimer’s Australia
‘It is important to understand that dementia is as much a social issue as it is a medical one.
The essential part of understanding dementia is to recognise the importance of everyday relationships and empowering people with dementia to live well though good support in the community. It also means having dementia friendly organisations to access services such as banking, retail and Centrelink. Humour too, is a critical part of the journey; learning to laugh with people with dementia is important in coming to terms with the diagnosis.
This insightful book focuses on what is important in the everyday life of the person with dementia and the family carer and explores the practical things we can all do to make our communities more dementia friendly.’
