This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of psychosocial approaches in dementia care. Covering the entire trajectory or course of dementia, from diagnosis through to care homes and the end of life, internationally renowned contributors from a range of disciplines inform readers on how to implement evidence-based psychosocial interventions in the real-world settings in which they work. They address potential obstacles to implementing or sustaining such interventions, consider how difficulties may be overcome, and take into account the range of contexts for the delivery of good practice. The book also covers family carer support, and provides useful information on recent changes to services and interventions.
This is essential reading for practitioners involved in planning and delivering psychosocial interventions for people with dementia, as well as for students and academics.
