Book That Will Find Place in Your Book Shelf
Sailesh Mishra’s Remember Me: You, Me and Dementia is an easy read for any of us. This book is highly recommended to those who are on the dementia journey with their loved one. Dementia awareness is very poor in India and people impacted find it really hard to get information on it. With this book, Sailesh Mishra has made a sincere effort to promote hope and assurance for managing dementia and its consequences.
The book is divided into a number of chapters and can therefore be used successfully as a self-help guide, in which key issues are easily addressed. The chapters have been written by various peoples who are involved in the work related to dementia care and awareness. It intends to boost understanding of dementia and also elaborates the methods to handle symptoms and behaviour issues. It is packed with real time incidents which gives more genuine emotional appeal to the readers. Chapter 24 (Carer – Looking After Yourself) by Lisa Gratrix is really well written piece and will serve as a good guide for caregivers involved in dementia care. Chapter 41 (In Remembrance of My Parents) penned down by Vanita Kumta takes you through the emotional journey of her life’s important part. Photo Story consisting of four pages adds more value to this book.
Kudos to Sailesh Mishra and his efforts to bring out this book, especially in our country where still there is a huge void with respect to the information and awareness on dementia. It is surely bound to inspire others to help and support people with dementia and also spread awareness about it.
