This in-depth, evidence-based book identifies how outstanding quality integrated care might be achieved, whether in residential or home-based settings. Experienced dementia researcher Dr Shibley Rahman highlights the key contemporary underpinnings of integrated care that are required for wellbeing for living with dementia, including technology, staff performance, leadership, and intelligent regulation of services. The book addresses the major challenges to promoting person-centred care, and tackles difficult conversations around spirituality, sexuality and dying well.

Taking into account recent developments in NICE guidelines and Cochrane reviews for dementia, this book presents an opportunity for all those involved in the provision of care for people with dementia to maintain a focus on delivering the best care possible, and to engage with the wider issues surrounding wellbeing.

Description : The cultural and medical history of dementia and Alzheimer's disease by a leading psychiatrist and bioethicist who urges us to turn our focus from cure to care. Despite being a physician and a bioethicist, Tia Powell wasn't prepared to address the challenges she faced when her grandmother, and then her mother, were diagnosed with dementia--not to mention confronting the hard truth that her own odds aren't great. In the U.S., 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day; by the time a person reaches 85, their chances of having dementia approach 50 percent. And the truth is, there is no cure, and none coming soon, despite the perpetual promises by pharmaceutical companies that they are just one more expensive study away from a pill. Dr. Powell's goal is to move the conversation away from an exclusive focus on cure to a genuine appreciation of care--what we can do for those who have dementia, and how to keep life meaningful and even joyful. Reimagining Dementia is a moving combination of medicine and memoir, peeling back the untold history of dementia, from the story of Solomon Fuller, a black doctor whose research at the turn of the twentieth century anticipated important aspects of what we know about dementia today, to what has been gained and lost with the recent bonanza of funding for Alzheimer's at the expense of other forms of the disease. In demystifying dementia, Dr. Powell helps us understand it with clearer eyes, from the point of view of both physician and caregiver. Ultimately, she wants us all to know that dementia is not only about loss--it's also about the preservation of dignity and hope.

Description : Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Health - Nursing Science - Dementia, grade: A, University of Chester, course: Masters of Science in Global Health, language: English, abstract: The aim of this research is to measure/identify cognitive, behavioural and psychological effects of music therapy on older adults with dementia. 47.5 million people are affected with age-related neuro-cognitive and behavioural disorder named as Dementia, and 1.9 million people have died due to this disease according to the world health report of 2015 whereas 7.7 million new cases are occurring every year. One in four people aged 85 and over will have different forms of dementia by the end of the year 2050. However, in the year of 2013, this fatal psychological disease lead to 1.7 million annual deaths, whereas in 1990; there were only 0.8 million deaths per annum due to dementia; which indicates that the rate of affected patients and case fatality rate are increasing gradually. Music therapy is a quick form of non-pharmacological, non-invasive intervention for the rising number of demented patients besides the medical as well as pharmacological intervention. Because these traditional interventions have proven their ineffectiveness and handled to side effects of medicine in demented patients. Nationwide, about 10% of the population, develop dementia at some point in their lives. It is a common form of brain defects which occur due to the ageing process and genetic abnormalities. Approximately half of the entire dementia population is over 85 years old and over. 3% individuals aged between 65–74 years have dementia in 2016; whereas 19% people with this disease aged between 75 - 84 years, which indicates that the percentage of individuals who are getting dementia is proportionate to the gradual increase of their age. By the blessings of modern medicine where more people are living longer, dementia is becoming more and more common in the population which overrides the percentage of cardiac illness, hypertension and other neurological age-related problems. Furthermore, for individuals with a younger age group, dementia is less frequent in the developing countries. Due to decrease risk factors and caring environment for the elderly persons, more carer within the family, family values and morals; dementia has not taken it tolls in countries like Bangladesh. Dementia is an excellent cause of disability among the old in various parts of the world. This fatal disease has increased the economic burden by which costs of care increases by USD 604 billion a year worldwide in 2010.

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.

Description : Cognitive disorders take a toll on everyone—the person living with the condition, their family, friends, caregivers, and the communities they live in. Most of the public's interest has been in the medical research area for this devastating disease, and advice is desperately needed from those who have created innovative solutions with their own first-hand experience. Voices in Dementia Care is based on a series of interviews with dementia care experts across Europe and the United States and with people living day-to-day with the condition. It provides an intimate look at the challenges of delivering high-quality dementia care with limited resources. The book provides readers a list of best practices that can be adapted and applied in the home and in institutional settings. Voices in Dementia Care is a must-read for anyone caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or other cognitive disorders. From Voices in Dementia Care— In these pages, we include transcripts of our interviews with the elder care and long-term care providers we have interviewed about dementia care. The voices of these care professionals are important to hear in their entirety, as they describe the nuances of the challenges inherent in delivering innovative high quality dementia care with limited resources. Based on our analysis of these interviews, we have identified the critical best practices that we believe all elder and long-term care providers should consider when delivering care to people living with dementia. These best practices can be adapted and applied by the informal caregiver as well—the sister, brother, child, or other loved one who may be responsible for caring for a person living with dementia outside of a traditional care environment.

Description : In People with Dementia Speak Out, twenty-three people from diverse backgrounds share their experiences of living with dementia. The contributors are honest about the frustrations and fears they face, but overall there is remarkably little self-pity and a great deal of optimism. The personal accounts demonstrate that with the right support at the right time, and above all with opportunities to continue to contribute to society in a meaningful way, it is possible to live well with dementia. These fascinating stories bring to life the characters behind the collective term 'people with dementia', and show that each person with dementia is a unique individual with their own personality, history, beliefs, cultural affinities and sense of humour, and their own way of adapting to the disabilities and opportunities which this condition confers. This unique collection of personal testimonies will be reassuring and encouraging for those coming to terms with a diagnosis of dementia, for their families and carers, and is essential reading for health and social care professionals at all levels.
