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.
