Volume 4 of Care-Giving in Dementia builds on previous volumes to continue to make a significant contribution to establishing a knowledge base for the developing field of care-giving in dementia. The editors bring together contributions from leading practitioners and researchers to bring the reader up to date with new developments in diagnosis, treatment and care.
Subjects covered include: visuo-perceptual changes in Alzheimer's disease, the Alzheimer Cafe concept, attachment in dementia, the role of humour in dementia, the awareness context of persons with dementia, couples group (psycho) therapy in dementia, spirituality, and improving end-of-life care for people with dementia. Care Giving in Dementia makes state of the art research accessible and relevant for professional care-givers.
It will help all health and mental health professionals caring for people with dementia to enhance their practice, educate others and investigate possibilities for further developments in this fast-growing field.
