Description - Care-Giving in Dementia by Gemma M. M. Jones
Caring for those suffering from dementia is a new speciality with its own rapidly growing body of knowledge. This second volume of contributions from practitioners and researchers around the world, is a handbook for all those involved in "hands on" caring, or in planning care, for persons with dementia. Volume 2 of "Care-Giving in Dementia" provides a source of information on thinking about individualized long-term care of both dementia sufferers and their families. Key themes in Volume 2 are: the subjective experience of dementia; the provision of care for family carers; differing cultural perspectives of dementia; the crucial importance of life-history; and information for understanding a person's reaction to their illness. There are also chapters on the search for an ethical framework and the best environment within which to provide care.
