About the Book

When an old man with Alzheimer’s Disease fell in love with a nurse who he seemed to confuse with his fiancee of long ago, sharing of stories enriched both their lives. The relationship enlivened ‘Joe’ and challenged the nurse, author Julie Goyder, to rethink her understanding of ‘people like Joe’. Their ‘storying’ moved well beyond protocol or politeness, evolving into a friendship that not only transformed the author’s attitudes to how people with Alzheimer’s Disease might be treated within institutions and the community, but made her aware of the vital importance the act of storytelling has for us all.
