Beloved Old Age (and what to do about it) 

Margery Allingham's The Relay, handed on to Julia Jones

“Whose survival; theirs or ours?” When detective novelist Margery Allingham faced responsibility for her octogenarian mother and two elderly aunts her first reaction was panic. In The Relay explains how she coped and why this experience became an integral, unmissable part of her family’s life.

Fifty years later Allingham’s biographer, Julia Jones, finds The Relay inspiring and insightful as she struggles to survive her own challenges of old age and dementia care.

Several members of the KDD team have elderly parents living with dementia. We have all found the experience of reading this book deeply heartening and reassuring. Thank you, Margery and Julia.
