How to live a full and rewarding life after a dementia diagnosis.


Keith Oliver was diagnosed with young onset dementia at the age of 55. Unaware at the time that dementia could affect people of this age, Keith set out to increase public awareness of the condition and dispel the myths about the illness. Using a unique diary format, this intimate and empowering memoir captures what everyday life with dementia is like, offering both a candid look at its struggles, and a profoundly moving account of Keith's journey to live a full life afterwards.
'A candid, moving account from a courageous man - this book gives thoughtful and at
times heart-breaking insight into living with dementia.' - Victoria Derbyshire, awardwinning
journalist and broadcaster
Keith Oliver was diagnosed with young onset dementia in 2010, and has since become a leading advocate and activist for dementia and is a national and international speaker. He is an Alzheimer's Society Ambassador and he was the first person with dementia to address the UN C ommittee on human rights and disability.
