Our colleague, Dr. Rakesh Biswas from Bhopal, India, forwarded us a link to a memorable essay in the current issue of The Lancet. Thank you, Rakesh!
(from the Lancet’s comments on this essay) “We share the same space, but not the same time”, writes Naaheed Mukadam about a patient with dementia in her essay “Stay with me”. The essay, which won the Lancet’s 2016 Wakley Prize, examines the way dementia disrupts life not only for the patient but also for the family and carers.
To say more would spoil the impact of this sensitive, articulate and important article. It well-deserves the prestigious Wakely Prize. Your time to read or listen to it will be well-spent!
