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 clich├ęs 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.
