BE WITH : LETTERS TO A CARER Paperback / softback



In this moving, deeply humane and surprisingly uplifting book, poet MikeBarnes shows that a side of dementia that is almost entirely missing frompublic discussions of their condition:`All people with dementia, and some of them strikingly, show depths ofsensitive awareness, resilience rising to heroism, and a capacity for joyfulrelatedness.'Be With balances candour about the devastations of dementia withinsights into its paradoxical and indeed often uncanny enhancements oflife, the ways in which it sometimes calls forth capacities long buried bythe defences of full cognition. Fiercely alive, marked by a sharp, unerring eye for detail and a wonderfulway with metaphors, Be With encourages us to focus on fellowship andaccurate witness: to simply be with who, and what, is actually before us.
