Replacing the successful "Working with Dementia", this edition 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 and provides a comprehensive account of current best practice. Beginning with the diagnosis of dementia and other problems associated with aging, this book considers assessment, the person centered model of dementia, rehabilitation and therapy. It outlines practical interventions, illustrated with case studies that 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 vital handbook for all care staff.
