"How useful is this book? I have referred to it often, and found myself quoting information and models of care from it. I lent it to a colleague to prepare a presentation on 'challenging behaviour' to our local carers' group and he thought it was an excellent resource. It is key reading for any mental health professional with an interest in improving the quality of life of people with dementia. I would recommend that all community teams have a copy." Dementia "Overall, this book is useful. It is well-indexed and has helpful summaries and sections on lessons for practice. It is to be hoped that the title will not deter clinicians other than nurses from reading it, as it will be of interest and of use to them too." mentalhealth today "This is an excellent reader aimed at a wide readership. I believe it is particularly appropriate for qualified staff in CMHTs, but also for mental health, occupational therapy and social work students as a comprehensive introductory text for mental health for older people in community settings."

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.
