    Good luck on your tour and let's hope it helps increase awareness and understanding of this very difficult illness. Please check my book, Dementia and Mum - Who Really Cares? by Michael Fassio. It is available on Amazon (paperback and eBook on their kindle store). It provides and honest account of how difficult it can be to look after a loved one with dementia, but it also provdes a hopeful message - that a good quality of life can be maintained even over the last few years of the illness. A proportion of sales proceeds are being donated to Dementia UK, Age UK, Alzheimer's Society and Crossroads Care. So far, a modest amount of £200 in the first 6 months since publication, but I am hopeful that far more can be raised over the next few years.
