MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Dementia is both a personal and a societal challenge. The goal of Dementia Care: A Practical Approach is to focus on how practitioners can meet this challenge with hope and compassion, thereby enabling those with dementia to live well.


The book takes a ‘strengths approach’ with an emphasis on exploring sustainable strategies. Its content is underpinned by relevant policies and strategies and explicitly links to research evidence while always valuing the voices of those living with dementia.


Covering various dementia strategies, the book provides a clear vision of dementia care delivery and is mapped to the Curriculum for UK Dementia Education. For health care students, the content is also mapped to the requirements of the Health and Care Professions Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.


The book includes experiences of people living with dementia, practical examples, self-assessment questions, and key point summaries. It is a valuable resource to practitioners, informal caregivers, families, individuals with dementia or those wanting to know more about the subject.
