A woman describes the decline of her parents due to dementia.

I found this book very moving / thought provoking - anyone with elderly parents in care homes and / or reaching the end of their lives will probably recognise much of what is recounted in this book.

If you want to read one book on end of life / dementia I would recommend this one (above the others I’ve read).
