book coverTo celebrate Dementia Awareness Week 2016 Healthwatch Enfield’s very own Lucy Whitman has organised special events where she will present her book People with Dementia Speak Out.

In the book, twenty-three people from diverse backgrounds share their experiences of living with dementia. The personal accounts demonstrate that with the right support at the right time, and above all with opportunities to continue to contribute to society in a meaningful way, it is possible to live well with dementia.

She will be joined at each event by contributors to the book. You can read the book rave reviews and buy a copy direct from the publisher here.
