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." John Wattis, Visiting Professor of Old Age Psychiatry, University of Huddersfield, UK

Description : The purpose of this report is to create the evidence-based research that will help to lay the foundations for the new Strategy. The objectives of this evidence-based research review, as agreed between the funders (The Atlantic Philanthropies (AP)), the Department of Health and the contract researchers, were fourfold: 1. to review current and future demographic trends in Ireland and provide estimates of current and future dementia prevalence rates, in relation to both those aged 65 and over and younger people; 2. to specify the main economic costs of dementia care; 3. to review current service availability (based on the recent Health Service Executive (HSE) audit) and estimated future demand for services; 4. to review best practice in dementia care locally and internationally. Given the terms of reference, not all issues pertaining to dementia could be covered, but the report does provide the basis for the development of many of the areas that will be central to the new Strategy.

Description : The award-winning PEARL (Positively Enriching and enhancing Residents' Lives) programme was developed to enable care homes to move from providing good fundamental care to excellent person-centred dementia care. Trialled extensively by one of the UK's largest care providers, it has been proven to dramatically increase the quality of life of people with dementia living in care homes, significantly reducing the use of antipsychotics and the incidence of stress-related behaviours. This concise and accessible guide, written by the Director of Dementia Care at the care provider which trialled and developed PEARL, describes the key criteria of the programme, and provides best practice guidelines for dementia care practitioners wishing to use the approach in their own care home. With an emphasis on the practical, achievable elements of the programme, and drawing on many useful examples, the author and contributors provide guidelines on, amongst many things, getting the fundamentals of person-centred care right; enabling decision-making; reducing stress-related behaviours; psychosocial treatments; safeguarding; supporting staff; and involving relatives.

Description : Person-centred dementia care relies on leadership that supports the ongoing process of learning about and valuing individuals, their feelings, strengths and needs, and using this knowledge to enhance wellbeing and create a positive care environment. With a strong practical focus and many helpful case examples, this book will equip readers with the practical skills, knowledge and confidence necessary to lead person-centred dementia care. The areas explored are relevant across a wide range of care settings, and to all those in, or starting, either a managerial or non-managerial leadership role within a dementia care service. Topics covered include the key goals for person-centred dementia care, and the type of leadership approach most likely to bring them to fruition; common barriers to person-centred dementia care, and how leaders can identify and combat them; how to nurture, support and empower staff; how to maximise the effectiveness of verbal and written communications; and how as a leader to respond to challenging situations and risk. This accessible book is essential reading for all those with a formal or informal leadership role within a dementia care service, including managers, deputy managers, team leaders, service managers and experienced care staff involved in leading or mentoring others.

Description : The guideline on dementia is the first of its kind to fully integrate the health and social aspects of care for people with dementia into a single volume. It has been jointly developed by NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) and SCIE (the Social Care Institute for Excellence). There are an estimated 700,000 people with dementia in the UK and approximately 1 million people caring for them. The guideline sets out clear recommendations, based on the best available evidence, for health and social care staff on how to work with people with dementia and their carers to significantly improve their treatment and care. This publication brings together all of the evidence that led to the recommendations in the guideline. It provides an overview of the condition and covers detection, diagnosis and assessment, and the full range of treatment and care approaches for people with dementia including promoting independence, psychological and psychosocial interventions, pharmacological treatments and palliative care. Importantly, it also addresses support and interventions for carers of people with dementia.

Description : Sharing and evaluating a series of relationship-centred approaches to dementia care, this book enables practitioners to have hands-on involvement in improving the quality of this care. 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. The book encourages thinking about the stigma attached to dementia, and how a focus on living well with dementia helps shape policies about people with dementia, with their voices included. Practical steps for carrying out relationship-centred dementia care are also explained, with examples of common obstacles and how to overcome them.
