Hi Dad . . . can we have a chat about your dementia . . . Can you remember how it started?
When Ron Husband started to forget things - dates, names, appointments . . . daft things, important things - it took a while to realize that this was a different form of forgetting. But it was just the first sign of the illness that gradually took him away from the family he loved.
Written and illustrated with wit and charm by cartoonist Tony Husband, Take Care, Son is an emotional, honest account of the illness that will strike a chord with anyone who has personal experience of dementia.
An emotional, honest account of living with dementia.
