If you saw the Kevin Whately programme last night on ITV, there was mention of a book published by BUPA called 'Caring for Someone With Dementia'. If you are new to caring for someone with dementia this is a very useful book. I sent for a copy last week, having seen it mentioned somewhere else. It is free to send for and has lots of useful information and suggestions/strategies for coping with this terrible disease.

You can get it via http://www.bupacarehomes.co.uk/asp/guides/ or you can download it directly from the site in .pdf format.
