Another Cup of Tea is a book for anyone caring for someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Selected from the diary of a son caring for his Mum in the latter stages of her struggle with vascular dementia. Written often in the midst of long, challenging days and nights. You’ll find yourself either laughing, crying or even nodding along in recognition at the ups and downs of their time together. You’ll notice how tea often saved the day, how they coped or didn’t and perhaps imagine yourself in their shoes, wondering what could happen next and how you’d cope in similar circumstances. As suggested in the foreword, grab Another Cup of Tea and enjoy! Profits from book sales will be shared between Alzheimer’s and dementia charities.
