We’re thrilled that our latest eBook is now available to buy and provides fantastic advice and tips for anyone who knows someone with dementia

It’s been a long time coming, but we’re thrilled to be able to announce that we’ve released our latest eBook.

The book is for the silent army of unpaid carers who support people living with dementia. We answer the questions you want to know, like is it ever okay to lie to someone with dementia? What’s the best way to cope with boredom, anger or repetition? How can I keep on caring when nothing seems to go right?

It’s been put together by Unforgettable contributing writer, Kate Corr, whose own mum had dementia, so she understands the kind of challenges that many carers face. It also had much input from other members of the Unforgettable team, including the founder, James Ashwell.

James explains:

‘I know how hard it is to care for a loved one with dementia. My mum was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (Pick’s disease) in her fifties and I cared for her for five long years. At times, I felt completely overwhelmed. Looking after her wasn’t only physically and emotionally draining, it was also isolating. I often felt very lonely.

‘However, having spoken to hundreds of people since then I realise I wasn’t alone at all. Not only do we all experience the same kind of feelings — namely fear, guilt, worry, exhaustion and sadness — we also experience many of the same practical challenges too. That’s why I founded Unforgettable and why we’ve compiled this book for anyone affected by dementia — carers, family members or friends.

‘This is the book I wish I’d had. It’s designed to help you with all aspects of daily life, to offer you some new ideas based on experience, and to remind you that you’re doing a great job under very difficult circumstances.’

So whether you’re just starting out, or already looking after a loved one with dementia, you’ll find all the essential information you need in this down-to-earth little handbook. From dealing with challenging behaviour to sorting out financial and legal issues or searching for answers to tricky, ethical dilemmas, this book provides you with much needed advice.

Look out for other eBooks that Unforgettable will be releasing next year, plus our current free eBooks you can download straight away.
