Résumé :

This landmark textbook draws on the extensive knowledge of researchers, practitioners, and professionals in the care of people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. It is informed both by a profound respect for people with dementia and a commitment to including them in decisions about their care and lives. While focusing on care for people with dementia, this core text also addresses the most pressing concerns of families by promoting practices and services that recognise the full humanity of their relative with dementia. In addressing the many complex issues related to offering support to people with dementia and those who care for them, this timely textbook is unique in emphasising strategies for creating sustainable change in practice. The book includes examples from a range of countries, drawn from research, practice wisdom and, most importantly, from the experience of people with dementia and their families. This key text offers valuable insights about how to:

-Provide competent and compassionate care for people with Alzheimer's Disease and other dementias
-Build systems to provide effective care
-Encourage collaboration among multi disciplinary professionals and users and carers
-Support those caring for people with dementia
-Ensure those with dementia maintain dignity, well-being and meaningful participation in life

Excellence in Dementia Care is a vital resource for those working with people with dementia. It provides an accessible yet sophisticated overview of the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to achieve excellence. It is an essential handbook for those responsible for training, education and skills development in dementia care
