Description : The number of geriatric psychiatrists, specialty fellowships, and practices has been declining relative to the increase in the number of older adults in the United States; critical shortages in care are the new norm. Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia was designed to address this predicament by enabling primary care providers to access a solid knowledge base and the clinical experience required to meet the needs of their patients with dementia. The author has written a concise yet comprehensive book that covers the full range of behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) encountered by patients, families, caregivers, and primary care providers. In addition, the book provides the necessary foundation for distinguishing the different types of dementia, critical elements of patient history needed to develop an appropriate treatment approach, and the basic medical examinations and lab work that should be performed. Each chapter begins with a brief précis; well-written descriptions of the major topic follow. The chapters explore the common types of behavioral and emotional symptoms and the important associated system issues relevant to dementia care, including elder abuse reporting, creation of advance directives and power of attorney arrangements, safety planning, and caregiver support.The book's strengths are many * Carefully chosen, realistic case examples bring the material to life in a vivid, compelling way.* An up-to-date review of the literature is presented, striking an appropriate balance between new and promising findings and current standard-of-care practices. The book also identifies significant gaps in the literature.* Standard-of-care pharmacological and psychosocial approaches in the management of BPSD are offered with a realistic understanding of the benefits and difficulties of implementing each.* Relevant information on complementary medicine is included, and the book covers personality, cultural, and spiritual domains so that the reader is cognizant of the whole-person approach in delivering dementia care.* Each chapter includes key points for quick and easy reference and resources to share with patients, families, and caregivers -- a boon to the busy clinician. * Although intended as a practical guide for clinicians in a variety of fields, those in academia who specialize in geriatric medicine or psychiatry will find the book a useful way to organize and teach this material to students, residents, and fellows. Pragmatic and clinically oriented, Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia will help primary care practitioners provide informed, compassionate care to older adults at risk for, or exhibiting, BPSD.

Description : Research-based advice for people who care for someone with dementia Nearly half of U.S. citizens over the age of 85 are suffering from some kind of dementia and require care. Loving Someone Who Has Dementia is a new kind of caregiving book. It's not about the usual techniques, but about how to manage on-going stress and grief. The book is for caregivers, family members, friends, neighbors as well as educators and professionals—anyone touched by the epidemic of dementia. Dr. Boss helps caregivers find hope in "ambiguous loss"—having a loved one both here and not here, physically present but psychologically absent. Outlines seven guidelines to stay resilient while caring for someone who has dementia Discusses the meaning of relationships with individuals who are cognitively impaired and no longer as they used to be Offers approaches to understand and cope with the emotional strain of care-giving Boss's book builds on research and clinical experience, yet the material is presented as a conversation. She shows you a way to embrace rather than resist the ambiguity in your relationship with someone who has dementia.

Description : Each year, more than 500,000 people are diagnosed with dementia in the United States. As stunning as that figure is, countless family members and caregivers are also affected by each diagnosis. Families are faced with the need to make vital end-of-life decisions about medical treatment, legal and financial matters, and living situations for those who no longer can; no one is prepared for this process. And many caregivers grapple with sadness, confusion, guilt, anger, and physical and mental exhaustion as dementia enters its final stage. In Making Tough Decisions about End-of-Life Care in Dementia, Dr. Anne Kenny, a skilled palliative care physician, describes how to navigate the difficult journey of late-stage dementia with sensitivity, compassion, and common sense. Combining her personal experience caring for a mother with dementia with her medical expertise in both dementia and end-of-life care, Dr. Kenny helps the reader prepare for a family member's death while managing their own emotional health. Drawing on stories of families that Dr. Kenny has worked with to illustrate common issues, concerns, and situations that occurs in late-stage dementia, this book includes practical advice about • making life-altering decisions while preparing for a loved one's inevitable death • medical care, pain, insomnia, medication, and eating • caring for the caregiver • having conversations about difficult topics with other family members and with health care, legal, and financial professionals Concrete to-do lists and lists of important points provide information at a glance for busy caregivers. Each chapter concludes with a list of additional resources for more information and help. Making Tough Decisions about End-of-Life Care in Dementia is a lifeline, an invaluable guide to assist in the late stage of dementia.

Description : ‘Those involved with this illness professionally or as a relative can learn much from this study, which motivates them to a deepening of anthroposophy. They will also be inspired by how the author brings the illness into the realm of the living impulse of Christ.’ – Michaela Glöckler Dementia, a broad category of brain diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, affects millions of people worldwide. Although its impact is primarily focused on populations of Western countries, orthodox medicine has not been able to discover the causes of dementia, let alone develop successful treatments or a cure. Given this situation, there are good reasons to investigate the psycho-spiritual factors connected to the outbreak of the illness. As the author states in her Preface: ‘The conception of man that is given priority today by the scientific world hardly takes into account that in addition to the physical-material component, for which certain degenerative or pathological processes can be determined with the help of technical apparatus, there are other components of his being to be taken into account which cannot be investigated in that way. So long as the cause of an illness is not sought in connection with those spiritual components of the human being, a successful treatment of the patient cannot be assured.’ Developing successful methods of treatment requires a full understanding of the human being. This can not be achieved through observation with the outer senses only, but increasingly calls for spiritual-scientific perception. Through this method, as founded by Rudolf Steiner, great service can be rendered to humanity, including precise research into the causes of ill-health. The factors involved in the eruption of modern afflictions, such as dementia, can be determined by careful consideration of humanity’s – as well as the individual’s – destiny. In this succinct but rich study, Judith von Halle describes her investigations into the phenomenon of dementia, beginning with a general outline of the anthroposophical conception of the human being and society, and applying that knowledge to what today is increasingly referred to as an epidemic. This book does not demand medical expertise, but requires an effort to engage with the psycho-spiritual conditions of dementia sufferers. It provides a wealth of insights and guidance to approaching one of the greatest challenges of our time.

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.

With imagination, compassion, empathy, and quiet humor, the real-life stories in Dementia Together show you how to build a healthy dementia relationship.

Description : This up-to-date, superbly illustrated book is a practical guide to the effective use of neuroimaging in the patient with cognitive decline. It sets out the key clinical and imaging features of the various causes of dementia and directs the reader from clinical presentation to neuroimaging and on to an accurate diagnosis whenever possible. After an introductory chapter on the clinical background, the available "toolbox" of structural and functional neuroimaging techniques is reviewed in detail, including CT, MRI and advanced MR techniques, SPECT and PET, and image analysis methods. The imaging findings in normal ageing are then discussed, followed by a series of chapters that carefully present and analyze the key findings in patients with dementias. Throughout, a practical approach is adopted, geared specifically to the needs of clinicians (neurologists, radiologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians) working in the field of dementia, for whom this book will prove an invaluable resource.

Description : About the bookCooking for people with dementia Simple measures that simplify daily lifeFamily members and professional carers are often left to cope very much on their own when facing the changed eating behavior of people with dementia. This emotionally difficult situation can be worsened further when there is the underlying worry of undernourishment and dehydration. This book will help shorten the carer's learning process considerably and will also help prevent many a disappointment and setback for them and the elderly person they are caring for. The authors use sensitive and straightforward language to explain the eating behavior of people with dementia, giving tips and ideas on how the carers can create the best atmosphere for eating, attract the attention of the person concerned, whet their appetite and give them as much independence as possible. Amazingly, these tips and ideas are often so simple. Whether the issues concern difficulties in swallowing or increased energy requirements, eating without a knife, fork or spoon, eating and drinking aids - all the aspects are dealt with in detail and are taken into account in the recipes. Attractive photographs of delicious looking and beautifully presented meals show that the fun-element of cooking is still alive.

Description : Establishing playfulness as an essential component of dementia care, this positive and uplifting book will be key in changing attitudes and providing ideas for new and valuable ways of interacting and being with individuals with the condition. John Killick explores the nature of playfulness and the many ways in which it can enrich the lives of people with dementia, including as a means of maintaining relationships and communication, supporting communication and generally lifting the spirits. Specific approaches already in existence are described, including improvised drama, clowning and laughter yoga, and a chapter on the playful approach to art and craft activities is also included. Personal accounts of playfulness by individuals with dementia, relatives and an actor with a decade's experience of using playful approaches with people with dementia offer rich first-hand insights into its transformative potential. Throughout the book, the importance of spontaneity and of being with the person with dementia in the present moment is emphasised, and the reader is encouraged to develop a playful mindset. A selection of colour photographs amply demonstrate playful approaches in action. Offering a fresh and perhaps unexpected perspective, this book is essential reading for dementia care practitioners and managers, activity coordinators, therapists, people with dementia and their relatives, and anyone else concerned with the wellbeing of those with the condition.
