Description : Dementia is one of the most pressing problems that currently faces planners and providers of health care today. This has resulted in an explosion in research activity with the consequent growth of knowledge about all aspects of dementia and in particular about Alzheimer's disease. This book summarizes current knowledge of the neuropsychology of dementia, highlights the multifaceted nature of the problem, and argues that an input from neuropsychologists can facilitate the advances made by other neuroscientists investigating dementia. The book shows that the study of dementia has caused something of a paradigm shift within neuropsychology itself as a scientific discipline.

Description : Growth in the incidence of dementia presents major challenges to global healthcare systems. As the burden of dementia in non-Western cultures grows, developing nations are expected to overtake developed nations in terms of dementia prevalence. Insights from developing nations and transcultural considerations are, nevertheless, neglected in the published literature. Dementia: A Global Approach fills this gap by integrating contemporary cross-cultural knowledge about dementia. Each section reviews the literature from the published, predominantly Western, perspective, contrasting it with empirical knowledge from non-Western cultures. Covering major clinical, epidemiological and scientific areas of interest, detailed consideration is also given to care-giving models across the world and management of patients who have migrated between regions. Enriched with personal insights from clinical experts across the globe, this is a key text for neurologists, geriatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, epidemiologists and all those responsible for managing provisions of dementia services.

Description : Our perceptions of dementia and what dementia care should constitute have changed dramatically over the past 20 years. Research has uncovered a mass of information concerning all aspects of dementia. This wealth of information should be reflected in a dramatic change, indeed a metamorphosis, in the way people with dementia are cared for. No such change has occurred. Dementia - Metamorphosis in Care will address the need for change and provide practitioners with a means of understanding why adhering to the old model – the medical approach – can be damaging in current care settings. Practitioners are advised on what is needed from them in order that they can positively influence the lives of those living with dementia. The importance of the role of professional carer and the responsibility they carry regarding whether or not care improves, is underlined throughout the book.

Description : As a focus for academic and professional study, dementia has moved rapidly from the margin to the mainstream during the last decade. Understanding of this distressing condition, its aetiology and recognition, has become much more widespread and sophisticated. Building on such clinical knowledge, this book challenges the reader - to think ethically and in a person-centred way about the implications of dementia at a personal, planning and service provision level - to consider consumer perspectives, not only those of carers but also the much neglected views of individuals with dementia - to explore less well documented areas such as dementia and Down's Syndrome, depression and early onset dementia. In conclusion, the book illuminates selected topical developments in service provision such as community care, advocacy and aspects of the built and social care environment.

Description : Age has been identified as the strongest risk factor for Alzheimer's disease, and is also strongly associated with vascular dementia. With this relationship in mind, this book looks upon the challenge of dementia as establishing its true relationship with normal aging. The traditional disease model of dementia may have obscured important clues about many underlying causes and features of dementia. In this book, experts and pioneers in the fields of aging and dementia make an important contribution to the understanding of dementia by reappraising the latest research in the light of the continuum model. Evidence for and against numerous models of dementia are discussed with particular relevance to the relationship between Alzheimer's and normal aging. Ranging from molecular genetics and fundamental neurobiology to issues of diagnosis and the provision of services, this is a challenging work in its breadth and level of argument, which has far reaching implications for the study of dementia, and indeed of the mind itself. As a review of current thinking and research it will serve as an essential text for clinicians and scientific investigators.

Description : The relevance of cognitive rehabilitation for people with dementia is becoming increasingly accepted by researchers and practitioners in the field. This special issue draws together examples of state-of-the-art research and systematic review by experts in this exciting and growing area. The contributors show how cognitive rehabilitation approaches can be applied, in different ways, to help optimise functioning and address specific difficulties across the full spectrum of severity. While the main focus is on the more commonly diagnosed forms of dementia, treatment possibilities for people with fronto-temporal dementia are also explored. Cognitive rehabilitation interventions need to be grounded in a clear assessment of the profile of strengths and limitations in cognitive functioning, and to demonstrate where possible that treatment effects extend beyond improvement on target measures to have a meaningful impact on wellbeing and quality of life. For this reason, the special issue includes contributions that explore detailed aspects of cognitive functioning or describe new developments in evaluating quality of life in dementia. Cognitive rehabilitation, it is suggested, should be viewed as one important component of a holistic approach to helping people with dementia, their families, and those who care for them. This special issue seeks both to provide information about what has already been achieved and to encourage and stimulate further progress.

Description : Vascular dementia is one of the most common forms of mental deterioration for the elderly, second only to Alzheimer's disease. It should not be defined as a single disease, but rather as a group of syndromes that relate to different vascular mechanisms. This is one of the first books to be solely dedicated to the specific class of vascular dementia known as subcortical vascular dementia. The strict focus of the chapters give an depth review that will clarify many different aspects and give an unprecedented amount of detail about this clinical problem. Considering that vascular dementia can be prevented with early diagnosis, the research presented in this book will be important for both students and specialists of this important field.

Often times, these individuals are unable to verbalize their frustrations and may exhibit agitation and other problem behaviors. Where traditional approaches may fail, this book provides new and proven techniques to enhance the lives of those individuals afflicted with advanced dementia. Instead of focusing on decreasing the problem behaviors, Enhancing the Quality of Life in Advanced Dementia focuses on alternative methods of increasing the positive behaviors.

Description : Although currently many people with dementia are not given the opportunity to receive professional counselling, this book explores the value of counselling for men and women living with this condition and how it enables them to make sense of their lives and their notions of themselves. The author explores the pervasive myth that all experiences of living with dementia are entirely negative and shows counsellors and carers how a person-centred counselling experience can have positive outcomes for those with dementia and the people who care for them. Based on the author's own experiences of counselling people with dementia, the book covers the fundamentals of the counselling process and precisely what a person-centred approach entails. The book then brings together several theories of counselling such as the role of the 'spiritual' in the counselling relationship; working with concepts of relational depth and configurations of Self; and the author's own theories of relating to a person's spiritual core. Accumulating findings from over 20 years of counselling experience in both the UK and the US, this book explores the importance of the Self and recognising each individual's worth and value. Dialogue from the author's counselling experiences is used to illustrate the person-centred counselling approach. Providing a comprehensive guide to person-centred counselling for people with dementia, this book gives an illuminating perspective on the subject and will be of value to counsellors, health and social care professionals, carers, people with dementia and their families.

Description : Understanding Learning Disability and Dementia covers all the essential issues in supporting a person with a learning disability when they develop dementia. Like the population at large, people with learning disabilities are living longer, and therefore an increasing number are developing dementia. Service providers, planners, doctors, social workers, carers and direct support staff need to be equipped with relevant knowledge prior to the onset of dementia, so that they can devise appropriate therapeutic interventions and coping strategies, including health and medication management and palliative care. This book will provide essential knowledge for anyone involved in the provision of services, assessment of need and direct care and support for dementia sufferers who also have a learning disability.
