Description : Effective communication is critical for everyone, and this insightful book teaches the skills needed by healthcare staff in their day-to-day interactions with people with dementia and their families. Often when people with dementia exhibit behaviour that challenges, it is an indication that their needs are not being met. The authors illustrate the key aspects of communication for the development of a skilled and confident workforce, capable of providing thoroughly effective care that reduces levels of agitation in people with dementia. The first six chapters describe the CAIT (Communication and Interaction Training) framework established by the authors. This is followed by chapters contributed by experts on the Positive Care ApproachTM, appropriate touch and communication with people in the late stages of dementia. Accessible and practical, it will help caregivers develop and articulate existing skills as well as gain new ones, allowing them to overcome the challenges faced when caring for people with dementia.

Description : This new edited volume seeks to meet the growing need for ways to support people with dementia across the whole course and trajectory of dementia care, with a wide scope of expertise. The book addresses how practitioners and carers can apply psychosocial interventions - which take into consideration the individual, social and environmental aspects of a person's life - across this trajectory, right from the earliest stages through to practice in care home settings. Divided into four sections, each covers a different context in which people with dementia can be supported: at home; in community settings; family and carer support; and those in care homes and hospitals. In addition, there is a distinct focus throughout on evidence-based practice and its implementation in real-world settings. This book is essential reading for any practitioner and caregiver wanting to support people with dementia.

Description : Seminar paper from the year 2019 in the subject Health - Nursing Science - Geriatric Care, grade: 86.3%, James Cook University, course: Bachelor of Physiotherapy, language: English, abstract: The utilisation of effective communication skills by health professionals serves as a crucial aspect in the delivery of quality healthcare and has been proven to improve coping, mitigate medical errors and ultimately increase treatment adherence. Successful therapeutic communication is achieved through the appropriate use of verbal and non-verbal mechanisms in conjunction with careful consideration of differences in communicative abilities, cultural orientation, social backgrounds and personal beliefs. Communication barriers frequently identified between health professionals and people with dementia (PwD) have been shown to significantly impact their quality of life, treatment effectiveness and progression of their condition. Dementia is characterised by a progressive decline in memory function along with reasoning, expressive and comprehension abilities. Although the prevailing symptoms pose challenges to communication from health professionals, adopting a strength orientated approach by exploiting the many communication abilities retained by PwD allows the development of strategies to overcome existing barriers. The following report aims to examine the effectiveness of two communication skills, vocabulary and visual aids, in facilitating the provision of quality healthcare for PwD.

Fostering a critical approach to our understanding of how we do relationship-centred dementia care, Reid shows how experiences of living with dementia, family awareness of dementia, professional knowledge of providing dementia care, and the health, social care and housing system are linked, and how good dementia care arises from the relationships between these groups.
