Dementia presents challenges to all those working in health and social care. It is a progressive disease that affects the person with dementia, their families and friends, and the wider community. Dementia affects each person in a unique way. The challenge to professionals is to respond to this uniqueness by providing support that is effective, meaningful and individualized, often in a context of service uncertainty and resource shortages. Dementia Care explores the key issues relevant to dementia care practice. Written by leading authorities on dementia, this new textbook is designed for both students and practitioners. It emphasizes the importance of evidence-based care and practice that are founded on understanding the lived experience of people with dementia and their supporters.
