On the 4th May 2012 an incident occurred which Dr Anthony Nixon still finds difficult to describe. In 1991, Marion, Anthony's wife was struck with Alzheimer's disease, fully diagnosed four years later. In a moving account of the progression of the disease and its ramifications on himself and his family, Dr Anthony Nixon in No Life Without You describes how he coped with the impossible. In this work Dr Anthony Nixon hopes to help others who find themselves in a similar situation, watching the inexorable decline of a loved one and shifting through the services to find support for the carer and cared for as the disease progresses through to its conclusion. Dr Anthony Nixon spares no detail in describing how the ‘incidence' which took his wife also nearly took his own. No Life Without You will not cure the disease but it may offer insights into how to cope.
