The Dementia Care Workbook

I regard this as a long overdue and highly relevant addition to the literature on dementia care. Its grounding in the reality of practice and realistic approach will make it a very valuable workbook for a wide range of car workers. The book will play a large part in helping to improve dementia care by presenting a vision and manual for 'best fit' realistic practice. Danny Walsh, University of Nottingham, UKThis is an excellent text for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The strong emphasis on person centred approaches and relationships permeates throughout the book and the activities presented provide the reader with the opportunity to reflect upon their own practice and the best fit options identify interventions for consideration." Sandra Fleming, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Trinity College Dublin, IrelandI thought this book was a very useful and detailed text exploring the world of the person with dementia and their carer." Dr Alisoun Milne, Reader in Social Gerontology, School for Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research, University of Kent, UKExcellent text which provides a number of useful case studies which helps to demonstrate the application of evidence to practice. Well written, informative chapters."

The authors reflect upon the reality of working within dementia care and the importance of working positively with others to achieve the best care possible.
