'I now know the meaning of 'Respite Room' on the notice on the door of the room I occupy. Clearly the occupier is the one from whom someone is getting respite.' Diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease, Roy Harden Jones used his intellect, his analytical strengths and his sense of humour to chronicle the ups and downs of living with dementia. Roy's skill as a writer allows readers to see the world through his eyes, and in this way he is able to advocate for others without communication skills. He was supported every step of the way by his wife and carer Clodagh, who has added her own insights. If you have a friend or family member taking the same journey, this book will open a window into their world. You may shed a tear with Roy and Clodagh - but you will laugh with them as well.
