Reviews

"This is a compelling account of the changes and challenges that a couple had to face after a stroke in May 2000. It is a well-researched, scholarly, yet moving account." - Professor Sir Charles George, former Chairman of the Stroke Association. "This book is scholarly yet tender and personal, fiercely honest and immensely confronting. It records the impact of stroke and dementia and 'extreme care' on life and personality and relationship. It is full of insightful comment and information that could enable readers and carers in similar circumstances to negotiate challenges with deeper understanding or to assist others to do so." - Margaret Fuller, Social Worker, former Clinical Services Manager, Anglicare Counselling, Wollongong, NSW, Australia "There have been other volumes on the caring journey of life with a brain-damaged or demented family member. This is a fine one, but it is much more. The reflections of a trained and intelligent mind on the meaning of caring and of life seen through the lens of "extreme caring" are relevant to us all. The book meets the critical question following a reading. Do I wish to press it on my friends? A resounding Yes." - Professor Sir Robert Boyd, formerly Pro-Vice-Chancellor, University of London
