Talking to kids about dementia | Getting the right vitamins

An illustration from Travels with Granny
Dear Mr sierra,
Dementia is a tough thing to talk about, especially with children. But it’s important for kids to understand what’s happening to their loved ones.

That’s why Juliet Rix wrote Travels with Granny, to explain a really difficult topic in an approachable way.

It’s been called a «gentle, positive and fascinating way of introducing a child to dementia».
