Primary Care and Dementia, Paperback / softback Book

Primary Care and Dementia Paperback / softback

Part of the University of Bradford Dementia Good Practice Guides series

Paperback / softback


This practice and training guide is written with the needs of health and social care professionals working with people with dementia in mind.

Drawing together theoretical considerations and examples of good practice, the authors look at the different stages of dementia and explain how to:* make the initial diagnosis - including guidelines for distinguishing dementia from depression;* convey the diagnosis to the person with dementia and their family - outlining the use of cognitive tests and the role of anti-dementia drugs;* support the client through lifestyle adjustments;* care for end-stage dementia patients - looking for example at the choice between community or institutional care. The book is illustrated with case studies and includes a chapter on understanding and responding to the needs of the carer - such as access to information and support - and the effect on their own health.

Outlining the shared knowledge base required by health and social care practitioners, this useful and accessible work book will also facilitate inter-disciplinary and inter-agency working.
