About the Author

Kenneth Agar was chairman of the Exmouth Alzheimer's Society for 13 years until his death in December 2006. During that time he campaigned actively to improve the care and welfare of those suffering from the disease, and organised many activities for local groups including outings and tea dances. He also worked for some years as a lay inspector for care homes in Devon and his experiences inspired him to write this book. Kenneth was a poet, writer of educational school books and Headmaster of Newham Primary School before he retired to Devon in 1978.
