Voices of Dementia Carers

Being a carer of someone with dementia is one of the most difficult things to do, as it is challenging, frustrating, life-changing and often very stressful. As a dementia carer herself, Helene McCarthy has written this book to help people who are on the dementia carer journey. The message is to tell dementia carers that they are not alone and that other carers understand. The book includes information about where to obtain help and support and provides tips for carers.
