Enhancing Health and Wellbeing in Dementia: A Person-Centred Integrated Care Approach

Enhancing Health and Wellbeing in Dementia

Shibley Rahman | Jessica Kingsley | £24.99 | 384pp | ISBN: 9781785920370

 

Dementia care is complex and can involve multiple morbidities, a myriad of services and competing demands on resources.

This book explains how to achieve integrated, person-centred care for people with dementia and their families in this context.

In doing so it examines a broad range of policy, evidence and best practice for each step of the dementia pathway, from preventing well to dying well, and offers a critical analysis of progress.

It explains how to uphold the rights of those affected by dementia as well as developments in holistic care provision.

Each chapter includes learning objectives and useful resources for readers who want to explore the topic in more depth.

It also covers aspects of physical health, cognitive approaches, oral health, sexuality and spirituality.

As the book provides an overview of the complexities of dementia care, it can be a little difficult to follow at times. It would be useful for nurses who want to further their knowledge, but I don’t recommend they read it in one sitting.
