About the Author: Dr Jennifer Bute
Dr Jennifer Bute, FRCGP, is a distinguished former General Practitioner. In 2009 she was diagnosed with early-onset dementia, and has since learned valuable ways of coping and helping others with the condition.
Summary: Dementia from the Inside
Dr Bute explores what can be done to slow the progress of dementia, and to help people living with it. Adopting the principles of neuroscientist Professor Kawashima, whose work has produced significant cognitive recover in dementia patients, Dr Bute runs Japanese Memory Groups in the dementia-inclusive village where she now lives. Using simple case studies, she shows how to communicate with people with dementia, even in advanced cases.
