This title replaces the successful Working with Dementia, which has been a vital handbook for many years for all those working with this group of clients. This long-awaited edition captures the essence of what has happened over the past decade in dementia care. It draws together many new ideas and practical approaches from a wide variety of professionals working at the leading edge of the provision of services to people with dementia. It can be read in its entirety as a comprehensive account of current best practice, but the chapters are designed to stand alone.
- Beginning with the diagnosis of dementia and other problems associated with ageing, this book considers assessment, the person-centred model of dementia, rehabilitation and therapy.
- The contributors draw on their considerable and varied experiences to outline practical interventions, illustrating their ideas by case studies which provide a stimulating insight into contemporary understanding and practice.
- Nursing staff, occupational therapists, residential care workers, social workers and all those in day-to-day contact with elderly people will be inspired by this entirely new edition.
