What Dementia Teaches us About Love

Nicci Gerrard

Date and time

Festival Hub


Dementia is the plague of our age and our great fear. By understanding it, we can deal with it in a better, more compassionate way. And it has much to teach us: about loss, courage, hope and heartbreak; about what it is to be vulnerable and to be human. Nicci Gerrard is a journalist and author - with her husband writing bestselling psychological thrillers under the name of Nicci French, as well as novels in her own name. She is also a campaigner. In 2014 she founded John’s Campaign, through which the fight for more compassion towards those living with dementia when they go into hospital has changed hospital policy.
