A Weston-super-Mare author has published a book that attempts to change the stigma surrounding elderly people living with dementia.

Andrew Noble has written Remember Me? a collection of seven short stories told by people with Alzheimer’s disease and other illnesses.

The tales are based around the seven heavenly virtues, with anecdotes dating back to the 1930s through to the present day.

Andrew said: “During my own time spent in care homes visiting members of my family, I spoke to some amazing people who had beautiful tales to tell.

“I think it is important to give readers a different perspective surrounding the issue of Alzheimer’s and dementia. It is an important topic.

“A lot of people will remember the subject matter surrounding these stories so the reader can relate to the book as some stories should not be forgotten.”

Remember Me? will be released on February 28 and can be bought from Waterstone’s, Arthur H Stockwell publishers or on Amazon Kindle for £7.95.
