Nicci Gerrard & Elizabeth Hay

The Ageing Process

Philip Roth described old age as 'a massacre'. In What Dementia Teaches Us About Love, Orwell Prize-winning journalist Nicci Gerrard approaches her father’s drawn-out death from dementia with compassion, wisdom and optimism. Joining Gerrard today for a discussion on our winter years is award-winning author Elizabeth Hay, whose loving memoir All Things Consoled chronicles caring for her parents in their final years. Chaired by Adam Rutherford.
