The Quotable Quotes: Dementia Refined is a vital collection of quotations taken directly from the service users, potential clients and health care staff. It is based on true events and is an essential tool for young professionals who intend to have a grip on mental health, families, the carers, the health professionals and health personnel at large.

Dementia sufferers may not be able to voice their concerns but the professionals and/or care workers must be able to decode or interpret their verbal or nonverbal cues implementing their expertise and creativeness. This book promotes understanding dementia and early referrals which will lead to early diagnosis of the disease. These are the true reflections of what we are currently experiencing in our societies and nursing homes.

Dementia has been around for decades but its resurgence has prompted another look and approach by the scientific world, hence continuous research on the subject which has extended to sporting activities, especially contact sport. This book mainly focuses on the initial stages of the disease affecting and devastating the families and elderly clients admitted to hospitals and care homes.

The book stresses the importance of maintaining and reinforcing the rights of people with dementia. “They are human beings and should be treated as such, are the words echoed in the book, having looked back at the failures of other nursing and residential homes across England and Wales.

It addresses the myths about dementia, some questions being answered and truth learned about the disease.

Having looked at the devastating effects of the disease and the failures we witnessed throughout our efforts to care for those who needed us most, with science and later developments in research, there is hope that the suffering will be eased.

Qualified in 1991 at the University of Fort Hare (B Cur) in South Africa majoring in general nursing science, psychiatry, community health nursing and midwifery, nursing people with mental health issues has been his life.
