Skills in caring for people with dementia are increasingly demanded of all health care practitioners as the numbers of diagnosed increase. Caring for People with Dementia presents Christine Brown Wilson's latest research into improving dementia care for both non-expert students and junior staff as well as more senior managers. The text first guides the reader through the underpinning theory behind the different approaches to person centred and relationship centred care and provides case scenarios with a range of practical strategies staff and students have developed and implemented. It then presents the different levels of the organisational change using practical strategies adopting a person centred and relationship centred approach involving the person with dementia and their families. This book will be indispensable reading for all nursing and healthcare students and practitioners who want to improve the quality of life for people with dementia.

Chapter 1: Common myths associated with the condition known as dementia
Chapter 2: Developing relationship based approaches to dementia care
Chapter 3: The role of the organisation in leading and facilitating relationship- based dementia care
Chapter 4: Developing a biographical approach in care practice
Chapter 5: Managing relationship based approaches to care
Chapter 6: Creating dementia friendly services
Chapter 7: Developing community through dementia friendly environments

Christine ensures that the book is focused on the person with dementia and their family, ensuring a person-centred approach.

The chapter on common myths is essential in breaking down the obstacles that often prevent the person living with dementia from getting person-centred care.

It is a book aimed at all levels from students to more senior staff, and will show all readers how we can all improve dementia care.
