Description : Dementia is one of the major health problems of our ageing society. Dementia nursing is one of the most important and highly skilled of nursing specialties. And yet this vital nursing speciality within a field of growing importance is often neglected and undervalued. Dementia Nursing: A Guide to Practice addresses this need by empowering nurses and other health professionals with the latest knowledge and the best clinical practice in dementia care -- presented within a holistic philosophy of person-centred care. This book encourages nurses to go beyond the technical aspects of nursing practice to hear the deeply human needs of the people in their care. The purpose of the book is not only to identify physical problems and clinical needs, but also to capture the lived experience of those with dementia, and to encourage all carers to respond with creativity and imagination. The breadth and depth of this definitive textbook are impressive, with evidence-based chapters on all major subjects within the field of dementia nursing. The chapters are written primarily by nurses for nurses. But dementia nursing is essentially an exercise in teamwork, and valuable contributions and insights are offered by other health professionals, carers, artists, and relatives from a variety of backgrounds and countries. The result is a comprehensive international volume on all aspects of dementia nursing. Biographical sketches and photographs of all authors are provided, and a comprehensive cross-referenced index ensures easy access to the many topics of interest covered. Book jacket.

Description : Meaningful touch is an essential part of truly person-centred dementia care, yet its value is often viewed as secondary to its perceived risks. This book restores trust in the power of touch, demonstrating the vital role it plays in supporting personhood, relationships and wellbeing, and challenging the barriers preventing staff from using touch in meaningful ways. Using many examples from practice, Luke Tanner demonstrates that touch and other forms of non-verbal communication are essential for 'being with' and not just 'doing to' people living with a dementia, and explains how and when to use touch effectively in everyday interactions, and in all stages of dementia. He places touch in the context of consent and safeguarding, whilst emphasising the need for positive attitudes to touch to be at the heart of care cultures. Offering perspectives, ideas, training exercises and culture change actions to maximise the benefits of touch in dementia care settings, this practical guide will enable practitioners to reflect on their own use of touch and develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to place meaningful touch at the heart of their work.
