‘Tea and Conversation’ with Nicci Gerrard, author of What Dementia Teaches Us about Love

After her own father's death from dementia, the writer and campaigner Nicci Gerrard set out to explore the illness that now touches millions of us, yet which we still struggle to speak about.

This truthful, humane book is an attempt to understand. It is filled with stories, both moving and optimistic: from those living with dementia to those planning the end of life, from the scientists unlocking the mysteries of the brain to the therapists using art and music to enrich the lives of sufferers, from the campaigners battling for greater compassion in care to the families trying to make sense of this 'incomprehensible de-creation of the self'.

"Dementia is all around us, in our families and in our genes; perhaps in our own futures. If its not you or me, its someone we love."

Join Rabbi Helen and Nicci online from 4.00pm with your tea, biscuits and questions.
