The last book from bestselling author and advocate Wendy Mitchell ‘This beautiful book will give hope and courage to many people’ Kathryn Mannix ‘An uplifting memoir that reminds us we should relish every moment’ Daily Mail ‘A really thoughtful and thorough exploration of end-of-life concerns’ Professor Celia Kizinger After her diagnosis of young-onset dementia in 2014, Wendy spoke affectionately about the liberating feeling that came with having open conversations and confronting life’s obstacles head on. So, in the years leading up to her death, Wendy set out to have what would be her most important conversation: to explore what options are available – and what options are denied – at the end of life. Courageous, balanced and wise, One Last Thing lists the practical ways that we can prepare for death, offers the gentle words to raise the topic with our loved ones and consults leading experts to educate us on the topic of assisted dying.

Wendy Mitchell

Wendy Mitchell spent twenty years as a non-clinical team leader in the NHS before being diagnosed with young-onset dementia in July 2014 at the age of fifty-eight. Shocked by the lack of awareness about the disease, both in the community and in hospitals, she vowed to spend her time raising awareness about dementia and encouraging others to see that there is life after a diagnosis. In 2019 she was awarded an honorary Doctor of Health by the University of Bradford for her contribution to research.
