I'm very grateful they've taken a punt on me (a recovering Crack 'ead Quaker) and my book (a book that includes a line about swallowing boobs). Fair play, the guy has had a tough life and a tough job, but the book was overly flamboyant in terminology and description. In the creative industries (ergh) cultivating relationships is really important – and luckily Expectation is full of the nicest, most insightful and talented ‘TV people’ you’ll ever find.

In this book are stories of old people rid of their inhibitions by dementia, of profit focused organisations under-paying their poorly trained staff who despite all (mostly) still try and give a good standard of care, and much on the practical realities of aging - bodies that don't work as well, and support needs that rid people of their dignity.

I’ve been a fan of the ‘professional memoir’ genre since reading Adam Kay’s This is Going to Hurt, a darkly comedic diary of Kay’s time as a junior doctor in the NHS – and Lonergan’s book is a valuable contribution from the rarely-heard perspective of a care worker.He would lose physical control and even likens the morning after a group binge to dementia, with ‘people you don’t properly recognise talking at you while the rest of the bodies in the room seem unreasonable tranquil and refuse to acknowledge you if you speak. I expected this to be more anecdotal and instead it felt like I was reading a text book with all the references. great book and account of what it is like for care workers that work in care homes and are more often than not considered the lowest form of employment. He hopes that experience will leave us “better equipped to deal with illness and ageing, and able to see dementia as more than just an obliteration-in-slow motion”. This book does for care home workers what This Is Going to Hurt did for junior doctors… this isn’t just a conscience-rebooting book.
