Dementia from the Inside: A doctor's personal journey of hope - Jennifer Bute

Dementia from the Inside: A doctor's personal journey of hope - Jennifer Bute

Jennifer Bute was a highly qualified senior doctor in a large clinical practice, whose patients included those with dementia. Then she began to notice symptoms in herself. She was finally given a diagnosis of Young Onset Dementia in 2009. After resigning as a GP, she resolved to explore what could be done to slow the progress of dementia. The aim of this practical book is to help people who are living with dementia and to give hope to those who are with them on the dementia journey. Jennifer believes that her dementia is an opportunity as well as a challenge.

You may not get any symptoms if you have coronary heart disease. But it may lead to angina (pain in your chest) or breathlessness, and there’s a risk you could have a heart attack.
