Dementia touches millions of us every day, yet we still struggle to speak about it. Nicci Gerrard (What Dementia Teaches Us About Love) and Wendy Mitchell (Somebody That I Used To Know) explore the illness with Alex Clark and ask how we begin to value those who become old, invisible, forgotten. What do we owe them, and each other and what, in the end, really matters?
