Publisher Comments:

The Art of Dementia Care is an easy-to-read, practical, and helpful guide for all those who provide support, encouragement and care for people with dementia in formal care settings. This valuable tool provides caregivers with insights into the special needs of people with dementia, focusing on communication as the key to making a positive difference in their lives. Caregivers are like artists; it takes creativity, patience, and skill to achieve positive results. This text draws upon examples from everyday care situations to highlight how to practice the art of dementia care by recognizing the limits of people with dementia yet promoting their strengths and abilities. Instead of thinking about dementia as a hopeless condition, this book holds hope that people with dementia can indeed enjoy a good quality of life under the right conditions. This book offers fresh ideas and new skills that can be put into practice immediately.
