On The Table Read Magazine, “the best book magazine in the UK“, Vicky Donoghue and Michelle Spratt share the realities of supporting their husband/father John from the time he was diagnosed with vascular dementia until his passing in 2019 in their memoir, Come On In.
Vascular Dementia Journey
Come on In is a memoir written by Vicky Donoghue and Michelle Spratt, a mother and daughter, that provides Vascular Dementia patients and their loved ones with practical support and an honest account of what lies ahead.
The authors discuss the unexpected and rarely discussed mental and physical aspects of the disease, written with honesty that does not shy away from the cruel realities of watching your loved one unravel and fade away. In addition, the authors’ sincerity and generosity bring an unexpected brightness to such a troubling topic, resolute in their belief that dementia is a phase of life that affects one in three people in the UK and does not define the sufferer or their caregivers.
One of the most difficult choices that newly diagnosed families must make is purchasing a copy of Come On In, but they will be glad they did so as their Vascular Dementia journey continues on the only path it knows.

Come On In was written out of love, respect, and, in retrospect, as a way to deal with the diagnosis of vascular dementia in a loved one.

They want you to know that you are not alone, that their experiences will help you along your journey, and that the advice they provide will assist you in figuring out your own method of coping.
