Description : The physical care of people with dementia is of vital importance, but so too is their emotional, social, mental and spiritual wellbeing. The creative arts are gaining increasing recognition not only as a tool for delivering effective person-centred dementia care, but also for attending to soul as well as body. Encouraging those who care for people with dementia to develop their own creative skills, this book provides a creative map of care with easy-to-follow examples and detailed case studies. After explaining why adopting a creative approach is central to effective dementia care, the authors go on to discuss meditation, singing, movement and storytelling, describing the therapeutic benefits of each and giving practical examples of how they can be used with individuals or groups. They also look at the importance of creative supervision in promoting creativity and creating a safe space for honest interpersonal connection: an essential foundation for effective teamwork. This book will be an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the care of a person with dementia, including professional staff in residential and nursing homes, hospitals and day centres, families and other non-professional carers.

Description : Based on the Alzheimer's Poetry Project, this book shows caregivers how they can incorporate the arts into their care of people with dementia, Although there is a strong focus on poetry, the book also incorporates other arts as well - performance art, sculpture, music, movement, and improv. Readers do not need to worry about being "poets", as Gary offers many techniques and tips, from methods of delivery like call and response, to carrying a crib sheet with you unitil you are able to memorize some lines. The book includes chapters on international and intergenerational programming as well as information for at-home caregivers and people looking to start communit-based dementia art programs.In Gary's work he has seen people with late state dementia without high verbal skills be able to communicate through poetry. The book touches on working with people with challenging behaviors as well as how to use poetry in group settings and in ADLs.

Description : 'There has been a considerable and welcome growth of publications about dementia care and Jessica Kingsley Publishers has certainly played a very useful part in this growth... we need more not less of this quality of work and writing if society is to include those with dementia as full citizens.' - Christian Council on Ageing 'The editors are to be congratulated on assembling a collection of contributions which make this book a milestone in the literature on dementia research and practice... [They] have collected papers on extraordinarily diverse issues and from a very diverse set of authors. Each of the chapters can be seen as an invaluable introduction to the topic area as well as addressing the main theme of the book. It is a milestone book because it manages to provide a snapshot of dementia studies at this moment in time and will, in my view, be widely quoted by policy makers, practice developers, researchers and trainers for the next few years... In such a treasure trove of approaches and issues it is hard to pick out the most striking... I would recommend this book: all readers of the journal will find chapters that they can use to improve dementia care.' - Journal of Dementia Care 'What makes this particularly notable is that Innes, Archibald and Murphy have harnessed such individual voices to address so cogently. Together they address the core issues, all too often neglected or marginalized, in dementia research and care. Sexuality, communication, risk taking, ethnicity, incontinence and practices within remote rural communities are all subjects that draw threads from the very fabric of our society, and it is indicative of how wide the spectrum has broadened that these historically dispirit strands can be tackled constructively.' - Signpost 'A diverse range of subjects are covered in a series of papers written by numerous professionals of standing from various disciplines... The subjects covered include ethnicity, spirituality, sexuality, dying with dementia (palliative care), faecal incontinence and risk-taking. There is a section addressing aspects of communicating with people with dementia and another covering the medical aspects of dementia that have not had much focus in recent years, such as hypertension and diabetes. Finally, there is a social science perspective, including discussing ways that people with dementia can be involved in the research process. I found the book easy to read and it is well written and clearly presented. Covering marginalized areas of practice, it offers food for thought for the reader and is a welcome addition to current literature'. - British Journal of Occupational Therapy 'This book provides invaluable research results and innovative thinking which professionals studying gerontology and dementia care will find very useful throughout their careers.' - London Centre for Dementia Care Newsletter 'The contributors to this volume examine the barriers to the consideration of social inclusion in the field of dementia studies and argue for the necessity of acknowledging the personhood of all individuals with dementia. The papers discuss the sexuality of people with dementia, communication and risk taking, and dementia care in remote rural communities, among other topics. The volume ends with suggestions for more inclusive values, service development, theory and research'. - Book News 'The book, commendably, tries to look at marginalized issues within dementia, such as death and dying, sexuality and faecal incontinence.' - Mental Health Today 'This is a book for the connoisseur. I wish I had contributed a paper. I wish I had read it even earlier. It will be appreciated by many people, from many backgrounds. This is the study of dementia and dementia-care grown to a new maturity. Chapters are original research papers, communicating new findings and analyses, set in the context of previous knowledge, well reviewed... Thanks to the editors and authors for this little gift. Let's be sure it is read widely.' - David Jolley, director of Dementiaplus Examining important issues in dementia research and care that are often neglected or marginalized, the contributors to this book provide fresh perspectives on current practice. The authors put dementia care into a socio-cultural framework, highlighting the impact of social change on dementia care over the last two decades and challenging current stereotypes. The contributors address the implications of power relationships between carers and people with dementia and discuss a broad spectrum of issues, including: * the sexuality of people with dementia * communication and risk taking * people with dementia from minority ethnic groups * faecal incontinence * dementia care and practice in remote rural communities. Taking an in-depth look at dementia research and service development, this book makes essential reading for practitioners, researchers and students working in the field of dementia care.

Description : Exploring concepts of ageing, personhood, capacity, liberty, best interests and the nature and ethics of palliative care, this book will help those in the caring professions to understand and engage with the thoughts and arguments underpinning the experience of dementia and dementia care. Dementia is associated with ageing: what is the significance of this? People speak about person-centred care, but what is personhood and how can it be maintained? What is capacity, and how is it linked with the way a person with dementia is cared for as a human being? How should we think about the law in relation to the care of older people? Is palliative care the right approach to dementia, and if so what are the consequences of this view? What role can the arts play in ensuring quality of life for people with dementia? In answering such questions, Julian Hughes brings our attention back to the philosophical and ethical underpinnings of dementia care, shedding new light on the significance and implications for those in the caring professions, academics and researchers, and those living with dementia and their families.

Description : Arts Therapies and Progressive Illness is a guide to the use of arts therapies in the treatment of patients with diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. In the last few years arts therapies have been used in an increasingly wide range of applications with new groups of patients, such as patients in palliative care, or with learning disabilities - Diane Waller has been a driving force behind this expansion. This book covers treatment such as art therapy, dance movement therapy and music therapy. In addition to dealing with a wide range of debilitating diseases, it focuses on the issue of the care and treatment of dementia and the effects on patients, carers and staff and the role of the arts therapies in improving the quality of life for the increasing number of patients who will sadly develop this distressing illness. This broadly focused, multi-disciplinary book will be of great interest to arts therapists, arts therapy educators, medical, social work and other staff who are concerned to devise care plans for these patients and their relatives.

Description : This book explores how theatre and performance can change the way we think about dementia and some of the environments in which dementia care takes place. Drawing on the author’s creative practice and other performance projects in the UK, it explores some of the challenges and opportunities of making performance in care homes. Rather than focusing on the transformative potential of the arts, it asks how artists can engage with the different types of relationships that exist in a care community. These include the relationships that residents and staff have with each other as well as relationships with care spaces. Exploring the intersection between participatory performance and the everyday creativity of a care home, it argues that the arts have a cultural role to play in supporting dementia care as a relational practice. Moreover, it celebrates the intrinsic creativity of caregiving and how principles and practices of care work can inform theatre and performance in diverse ways.

Description : In the last 30 years, a distinctive intersection between disability studies – including disability rights advocacy, disability rights activism, and disability law – and disability arts, culture, and media studies has developed. The two fields have worked in tandem to offer critique of representations of disability in dominant cultural systems, institutions, discourses, and architecture, and develop provocative new representations of what it means to be disabled. Divided into 5 sections: Disability, Identity, and Representation Inclusion, Wellbeing, and Whole-of-life Experience Access, Artistry, and Audiences Practices, Politics and the Public Sphere Activism, Adaptation, and Alternative Futures this handbook brings disability arts, disability culture, and disability media studies – traditionally treated separately in publications in the field to date – together for the first time. It provides scholars, graduate students, upper level undergraduate students, and others interested in the disability rights agenda with a broad-based, practical and accessible introduction to key debates in the field of disability art, culture, and media studies. An internationally recognised selection of authors from around the world come together to articulate the theories, issues, interests, and practices that have come to define the field. Most critically, this book includes commentaries that forecast the pressing present and future concerns for the field as scholars, advocates, activists, and artists work to make a more inclusive society a reality.

Description : This open access book offers an overview of the beautiful, powerful, and dynamic array of opportunities to promote health through the arts from theoretical, methodological, pedagogical, and critical perspectives. This is the first-known text to connect the disparate inter-disciplinary literatures into a coherent volume for health promotion practitioners, researchers, and teachers. It provides a one-stop depository for using the arts as tools for health promotion in many settings and as bridges across communities, cultures, and sectors. The diverse applications of the arts in health promotion transcend the multiple contexts within which health is created, i.e., individual, community, and societal levels, and has a number of potential health, aesthetic, and social outcomes. Topics covered within the chapters include: Exploring the Potential of the Arts to Promote Health and Social Justice Drawing as a Salutogenic Therapy Aid for Grieving Adolescents in Botswana Community Theater for Health Promotion in Japan From Arts to Action: Project SHINE as a Case Study of Engaging Youth in Efforts to Develop Sustainable Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Strategies in Rural Tanzania and India Movimiento Ventana: An Alternative Proposal to Mental Health in Nicaragua Using Art to Bridge Research and Policy: An Initiative of the United States National Academy of Medicine Arts and Health Promotion is an innovative and engaging resource for a broad audience including practitioners, researchers, university instructors, and artists. It is an important text for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, particularly in program planning, research methods (especially qualitative methodology), community health, and applied art classes. The book also is useful for professional development among current health promotion practitioners, community nurses, community psychologists, public health professionals, and social workers.

The expertise of researchers, practitioners and academic tutors is brought together in a stimulating, informative and sometimes provocative read."

Cover Image © Cathy Greenblat "Awareness of dementia is at its highest and this reflects the importance of the condition for individuals, their families, health and social care services and the wider community. While we have made significant advances in the care for people with dementia and their families, there is much work yet to be done. This book provides a fantastic framework in which to set our understanding of dementia and to take things forward." Alistair Burns, Professor of Old Age Psychiatry, Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences, University of Manchester, UK "This edition of Excellence in Dementia Care provides an important, new and comprehensive overview of the state of the art in caring for the diversity of people with dementia. The international authors and global focus have created a unique textbook that will help educators, students and the broader care community to better understand the challenges and opportunities related to dementia care. I am particularly excited about this new edition because it goes beyond the individual and the family by showcasing efforts to create dementia-friendly communities and adapt physical design, offers a critical perspective on how dementia is portrayed in the media, literature and the arts, tackles issues related to whole person assessment, care planning and care transitions, and addresses the unique concerns of living with young-onset dementia. This volume is a welcome addition to the dementia care toolbox and will prove valuable to a very diverse international audience." Dr Robyn I. Stone, Senior VP for Research, LeadingAge, Washington DC, USA "The depth and breadth of this book invites all involved in practice, research and policy to reconsider dementia as something other than a degenerative brain disease and to shift their perspective to the person. The voice of the individual living with dementia, their family, care partners and collaborating professionals are all reconsidered within the context of our current evidenced-based knowledge. This book deeply challenges the status quo of dementia care and sets an expectation for so much more." Anna Ortigara, Organizational Change Consultant, PHI PolicyWorks, USA "This text will meet the needs of registered and preregistered student nurses working with people with dementia. It skilfully discusses all aspects of dementia drawing on the work of a number of experts in the field. The book considers the biological, social and physiological impact of the condition. It presents a balanced discussion of current research and thinking on the treatment of the condition and the care of dementia sufferers and their families. New and updated chapters help ensure readers of this text gain a holistic understanding of contemporary issues around this distressing and life-limiting condition." Nichola Barlow, Senior Lecturer Adult Nursing, University of Huddersfield, UK "The first edition of this book was a vitally important and a key text in its field combining the talents of multiple experts in dementia and older people's care. It is pleasing to say that the second edition is equally as pivotal in gathering key expertise and providing the reader with the essential and important insight to provide forward-thinking care. The text takes forwards the concepts of dementia-friendly communities and explores the crucial topics of care in acute wards and end of life care. The text is a comprehensive book that would be useful to many health and social care professionals across a range of diverse organisations within the NHS, Voluntary Sector and other private and public health sector providers. Anyone working with older people and people with dementia and their carers should have access to a copy within their organization or I would strongly encourage individuals to purchase their own copy. I feel this is an essential text for anyone teaching health and social care courses from undergraduate to postgraduate students across a range of health and social care education settings. The sound evidence base to each chapter allows people working with individuals with dementia and their families to have access to the evidence quickly and easily, which is ultimately useful to practitioners and staff working on the ground. I feel this text is long overdue and of immense value to the field." Donna Doherty, Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Health Sciences, Staffordshire University, UK "Bravo to the authors of Excellence in Dementia Care! They have created a must read guidebook for those providing care to persons experiencing cognitive changes and their families. This collaborative effort focuses on successful provider strategies encompassing topics across the dementia journey and is filled with spot on, relevant, and timely information. Best of all, this work is loaded with real case studies to help translate knowledge to practice, making it a true resource for all practitioners." Suzanne Bottum-Jones, MA, Wisconsin Alzheimer's Institute, School of Medicine & Public Health, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA "..... the frequent use of narrative case studies and quotes from patients and carers makes for an excellent text that can be used in courses and training for those working in the field. The topics covered are diverse, ranging from ethics to ethnicity and from the designed environment to diagnosis and care pathways. The burning desire to put the best research into practice is clear throughout and the evidence base for good practice is carefully examined."

Description : Psychodynamic Approaches to the Experience of Dementia: Perspectives from Observation, Theory and Practice demonstrates the impact of healthcare approaches that take into account not only the practical needs but also the emotional experience of the patient, their partners, families and friends, lay carers and professional staff. Currently there is no cure for dementia, but the psychosocial and therapeutic approaches described in this volume have appeared to help people, both patients and carers, feel more contained and less lonely and isolated. Psychoanalytic theory provides a disciplined way of thinking about the internal world of an individual and their relationships. Each author provides their own commentary on the personal and interpersonal effects of dementia, endeavouring to understand behaviours and emotions which may otherwise seem incomprehensible. The subject is approached from a psychodynamic perspective, considering the unconscious, previous and current experiences and relationships, including those between patients and staff. Psychodynamic Approaches to the Experience of Dementia illustrates the practical and theoretical thinking of clinicians from a wide range of disciplines who are engaged in the care of people in late life with a diagnosis of dementia. It will be essential reading for mental health and health professionals in practice and training in the field of dementia.

Description : Providing people with dementia with opportunities to engage in creative activity can play a crucial role in maintaining and enhancing communication, and in reinforcing personhood and identity. This thoughtful book describes how people with dementia, and the people who work with and care for them, can foster and develop a creative approach, and provides rich and varied ideas for creative activities. The authors explore the concept of creativity - what exactly it is, its particular relevance for people with dementia and how to get into the creative 'flow'. They introduce a range of creative art forms, including poetry and story-telling, collage, drama, music-making, photography, textiles and working with wood and metal, and suggest possibilities for employing them in a range of settings, and with people of all abilities. Consideration is given to the practicalities of facilitating such creative work, including how to organise and run sessions, how to involve people with dementia and their carers, and how to reflect upon the experience. Practice examples are included throughout the book, as well as the comments and observations of people with dementia, and many examples of the artwork and poetry the authors have created with people with dementia over the years. Brimming with ideas, suggestions and helpful guidance, this is an essential resource for all those who work with people with dementia, and an inspiring read for people with dementia and their families.

This includes reading circles, art programmes, drum circles, poetry, and video diaries.

Description : Everyday Citizenship and People with Dementia prioritises the ordinary lives of people with dementia, and thereby broadens the agenda towards everyday citizenship. The contributors bring to the fore the idea that a person living with dementia has multiple opinions, identities and a stake in society.The notion of everyday citizenship is used to shift the focus away from care settings and diagnostic and post-diagnostic support - all of which are important, of course - to the normal everyday routines and settings of a persons life. The notion of citizenship is mobilised within a range of contexts from dealing with the welfare system to living and being a part of a neighbourhood. Each chapter focuses on everyday citizenship from the perspective of people living with dementia and shows how citizenship is a necessity for a vibrant, inclusive society. The discussion is informed by empirically based work and authored by experts from different parts of the world, including Canadian and Scots citizens who are living with dementia. The stress, throughout the book, is that the everyday and mundane is not only important in a practical sense but also in a political one. The book is thus for all interested in current debates about equality and the rights of people with dementia.

Description : Section A reviews whether arts-based activities for people with a dementia (PWD) have significant cognitive, social, and psychological benefits for this population. There is a variety of theoretical perspectives on dementia that encompass the biological, psychological, and social effects of the disease on the wellbeing of PWD. Visual arts may be an appropriate way of addressing some of the challenges that PWD face by providing a means of ameliorating some of their cognitive, social, and psychological difficulties. Literature from the field of arts-based activities with PWD suggests that there is no apparent theoretical conceptualisation in the area, as most studies have attempted to evaluate various art programmes with no clear rationale for expected findings; rather, they have taken a more exploratory stance. However, they indicate that arts-based activities can have social and psychological benefits by increasing confidence, enthusiasm, enjoyment, social contact, mood, quality of life, and ratings of depression. The review concludes with a rationale for why it is important to expand the current evidence base on arts-based activities for PWD. Section B: Dementia refers to a variety of diseases that are characterised by cognitive difficulties and an overall decline in daily living skills. Arts and health interventions may be particularly valuable ways of improving the lives of PWD and their family carers. This exploratory study involved six people with mild to moderate dementia and six family carers attending an arts-based intervention at a major London art gallery for three sessions over three weeks, in which they engaged in art-viewing and art-making. Using audio recordings to record PWDs' responses, rather than standardised measures, which are often problematic with this population, the study sought to explore possible changes in cognition of PWD during the intervention, namely episodic memory and verbal fluency. Using a mixed methods design, data were collected at five points and analysed using content and thematic analyses. The findings suggested that episodic memory and verbal fluency appeared to improve during the art gallery-based intervention. This was substantiated by family carers who also reported that PWD showed increased mood, confidence and social interaction, and that they valued the shared experience and learning opportunity. Whether these changes can be attributed to the intervention is a matter for further research beyond this exploratory study. Future research is proposed to further understand the implications of these preliminary findings. Section C presents a critical appraisal of the research. Research skills that have been learned and developed over the course of the process are discussed, such as increased awareness of the benefits of working within a wider research community. There is consideration of the need to communicate clearly and sensitively with other professionals from differing backgrounds and organisations, as well as the importance of building on a coherent evidence base when designing a research project. Better organisation relating to recruitment and investigation into recording during the art-viewing sessions at the gallery are identified as aspects that would be done differently, as well as consideration of using a case study approach. Clinical consequences of the research are discussed, such as utilising a community psychology approach and involving art and creativity in therapeutic sessions. Finally, further research in the area is considered, such as by expanding the study and using robust neuropsychological measures to detect cognitive change.
