What dementia teaches us about love

Nicci Gerrard is a writer and campaigner, a celebrated novelist with her husband as Nicci French and recipient of the 2016 Orwell Prize for Journalism ‘Exposing Britain’s Social Evils’. She is also co-founder of John's Campaign, named after her father, which has campaigned to give carers of those with dementia the same rights as parents of children to accompany them in hospital.
