Supporting People with Dementia: Understanding and Responding to Distressed Behaviour

Presented as a study guide, this publication offers practical advice on how to avoid escalating problems for staff who care for people with dementia

Presented as a study guide, this publication offers practical advice on how to avoid escalating problems for staff who care for people with dementia.

There is a practical introduction setting out why the book is relevant. However, it does not specifically state it is aimed at nurses, so readers should take this into account. The section on reflective practice is too simplistic.

Overall the guide is well presented, clear and well laid out. Each section has short activities and space for reflective comments and there are key points at the end.

Helpful appendices contain tools for assessment that will be useful in practice.
