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 : "This study provides information on building a "state of the art" dementia facility ... The literature revealed the importance of an aging in place model of care and to provide exemplar therapeutic programming, residential design and sources of meaning in each person's life. Sources of meaning in dementia care especially looks at the importance of spiritual care with people who have Alzheimer's disease. Four exemplar dementia care facilities were found and each reflected "state of the art" dimensions. The paper concluded with detailing some change initiatives that are needed when building an exemplar dementia facility."--Leaf 4.

Description : "How useful is this book? I have referred to it often, and found myself quoting information and models of care from it. I lent it to a colleague to prepare a presentation on 'challenging behaviour' to our local carers' group and he thought it was an excellent resource. It is key reading for any mental health professional with an interest in improving the quality of life of people with dementia. I would recommend that all community teams have a copy." Dementia "Overall, this book is useful. It is well-indexed and has helpful summaries and sections on lessons for practice. It is to be hoped that the title will not deter clinicians other than nurses from reading it, as it will be of interest and of use to them too." mentalhealth today "This is an excellent reader aimed at a wide readership. I believe it is particularly appropriate for qualified staff in CMHTs, but also for mental health, occupational therapy and social work students as a comprehensive introductory text for mental health for older people in community settings."

Description : New Developments in Dementia Prevention Research addresses a dearth of knowledge about dementia prevention and shows the importance of considering the broader social impact of certain risk factors, including the role we each play in our own cognitive health throughout the lifespan. The book draws on primary and secondary research in order to investigate the relationship between modifiable factors, including vascular and psychosocial risks, that may affect the incidence of dementia. Bringing together world-leading expertise from applied science, medicine, psychology, health promotion, epidemiology, health economics, social policy and primary care, the book compares and contrasts scientific and service developments across a range of settings. Each chapter presents these themes in a way that will ensure best practice and further research in the field of dementia prevention is disseminated successfully throughout the world. Perhaps most importantly, chapters also question what type of social responsibility we are prepared to embrace in order to address the challenges inherent in dementia prevalence. New Developments in Dementia Prevention Research includes contributions from leading authorities in brain health and dementia prevention and provides an essential contribution to the discourse on dementia prevention. It will be of great interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students engaged in the study of the psychological and social aspects of aging and dementia.

Description : 'There has been a considerable and welcome growth of publications about dementia care and Jessica Kingsley Publishers has certainly played a very useful part in this growth... we need more not less of this quality of work and writing if society is to include those with dementia as full citizens.' - Christian Council on Ageing 'The editors are to be congratulated on assembling a collection of contributions which make this book a milestone in the literature on dementia research and practice... [They] have collected papers on extraordinarily diverse issues and from a very diverse set of authors. Each of the chapters can be seen as an invaluable introduction to the topic area as well as addressing the main theme of the book. It is a milestone book because it manages to provide a snapshot of dementia studies at this moment in time and will, in my view, be widely quoted by policy makers, practice developers, researchers and trainers for the next few years... In such a treasure trove of approaches and issues it is hard to pick out the most striking... I would recommend this book: all readers of the journal will find chapters that they can use to improve dementia care.' - Journal of Dementia Care 'What makes this particularly notable is that Innes, Archibald and Murphy have harnessed such individual voices to address so cogently. Together they address the core issues, all too often neglected or marginalized, in dementia research and care. Sexuality, communication, risk taking, ethnicity, incontinence and practices within remote rural communities are all subjects that draw threads from the very fabric of our society, and it is indicative of how wide the spectrum has broadened that these historically dispirit strands can be tackled constructively.' - Signpost 'A diverse range of subjects are covered in a series of papers written by numerous professionals of standing from various disciplines... The subjects covered include ethnicity, spirituality, sexuality, dying with dementia (palliative care), faecal incontinence and risk-taking. There is a section addressing aspects of communicating with people with dementia and another covering the medical aspects of dementia that have not had much focus in recent years, such as hypertension and diabetes. Finally, there is a social science perspective, including discussing ways that people with dementia can be involved in the research process. I found the book easy to read and it is well written and clearly presented. Covering marginalized areas of practice, it offers food for thought for the reader and is a welcome addition to current literature'. - British Journal of Occupational Therapy 'This book provides invaluable research results and innovative thinking which professionals studying gerontology and dementia care will find very useful throughout their careers.' - London Centre for Dementia Care Newsletter 'The contributors to this volume examine the barriers to the consideration of social inclusion in the field of dementia studies and argue for the necessity of acknowledging the personhood of all individuals with dementia. The papers discuss the sexuality of people with dementia, communication and risk taking, and dementia care in remote rural communities, among other topics. The volume ends with suggestions for more inclusive values, service development, theory and research'. - Book News 'The book, commendably, tries to look at marginalized issues within dementia, such as death and dying, sexuality and faecal incontinence.' - Mental Health Today 'This is a book for the connoisseur. I wish I had contributed a paper. I wish I had read it even earlier. It will be appreciated by many people, from many backgrounds. This is the study of dementia and dementia-care grown to a new maturity. Chapters are original research papers, communicating new findings and analyses, set in the context of previous knowledge, well reviewed... Thanks to the editors and authors for this little gift. Let's be sure it is read widely.' - David Jolley, director of Dementiaplus Examining important issues in dementia research and care that are often neglected or marginalized, the contributors to this book provide fresh perspectives on current practice. The authors put dementia care into a socio-cultural framework, highlighting the impact of social change on dementia care over the last two decades and challenging current stereotypes. The contributors address the implications of power relationships between carers and people with dementia and discuss a broad spectrum of issues, including: * the sexuality of people with dementia * communication and risk taking * people with dementia from minority ethnic groups * faecal incontinence * dementia care and practice in remote rural communities. Taking an in-depth look at dementia research and service development, this book makes essential reading for practitioners, researchers and students working in the field of dementia care.

Description : What is person-centred dementia care, and how can it be used to improve care for people from diagnosis to end of life? How can we improve services in people's own homes, in care homes, in supported housing and in hospitals? This substantially updated second edition considers recent developments in person-centred care, presenting refreshed guidelines for practice. Dawn Brooker and Isabelle Latham explain the evolution of the key principles of person-centred care that comprise the VIPS model. They describe how it has been applied in diverse service settings, and show how to put the model into practice. A new chapter dedicated to culture of care will help service managers to get to grips with this slippery concept, and includes important information on how to guard against neglectful practice. Case studies from the CHOICE programme, a research project on culture of care, demonstrate the key factors that are important for people living with advanced dementia and complex needs to live well.

Description : Arts Therapies and Progressive Illness is a guide to the use of arts therapies in the treatment of patients with diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. In the last few years arts therapies have been used in an increasingly wide range of applications with new groups of patients, such as patients in palliative care, or with learning disabilities - Diane Waller has been a driving force behind this expansion. This book covers treatment such as art therapy, dance movement therapy and music therapy. In addition to dealing with a wide range of debilitating diseases, it focuses on the issue of the care and treatment of dementia and the effects on patients, carers and staff and the role of the arts therapies in improving the quality of life for the increasing number of patients who will sadly develop this distressing illness. This broadly focused, multi-disciplinary book will be of great interest to arts therapists, arts therapy educators, medical, social work and other staff who are concerned to devise care plans for these patients and their relatives.

Description : The story of dementia as I present it in these pages is the alternative narrative which has been occupying the shadowlands of the subject, and which is much in need of bringing into the light. So far as we are aware, there has never been a book before with this title or aim. This may be because no-one has been foolhardy enough to attempt one! And it is true that this is a story in mid-flow, even perhaps still near the beginning. But the subject is so complex, and surrounded with so many misconceptions that, even in a truncated form, it needs to be told. John Killick has chosen a simple but effective format. Each of the nine main chapters focuses on an individual or individuals (twelve in number) who, in his view, have made significant contributions to our knowledge. The message is one of hope. Although the medical model has yielded little in the way of advances, that is not true of psychosocial initiatives. This little book tells the hidden story of positive approaches, and those who have devoted their lives to finding alternative creative solutions to one of today’s great challenges. If your life is at all touched by dementia, you should be reading it.

Description : Based on the Alzheimer's Poetry Project, this book shows caregivers how they can incorporate the arts into their care of people with dementia, Although there is a strong focus on poetry, the book also incorporates other arts as well - performance art, sculpture, music, movement, and improv. Readers do not need to worry about being "poets", as Gary offers many techniques and tips, from methods of delivery like call and response, to carrying a crib sheet with you unitil you are able to memorize some lines. The book includes chapters on international and intergenerational programming as well as information for at-home caregivers and people looking to start communit-based dementia art programs.In Gary's work he has seen people with late state dementia without high verbal skills be able to communicate through poetry. The book touches on working with people with challenging behaviors as well as how to use poetry in group settings and in ADLs.

Description : First published in 1998, this book is a study on the influence of emotions on autobiographical memory in dementia. Based on eight in-depth case-studies of older people with dementia, collected over a two year period, the general findings of this innovative study reveal the strength and durability of the personal narrative even as cognitive processes decline. Using a psychotherapeutic approach, the author is able to demonstrate that the retention of a personal past give a sense of narrative identity and well-being to sufferers of dementia and has an important part to play in dementia care training. Researchers, teachers and students will find this book a useful resource, together with those who work in the field of ageing and dementia care.

Description : Dementia is increasingly and widely recognised as a serious health and social challenge, in the developed world as well as in the developing world. The need therefore to design and implement dementia care services of high quality is becoming more and more vital, particularly given the likelihood of ever increasing demand in a world, which likely sees resources at best remaining at current levels. Designing and Delivering Dementia Services describes current developments in the design and configuration of dementia services. It offers an informative and detailed overview of what constitutes high quality care, considering the circumstances patients and carers may find themselves in. For dementia to get the priority it deserves, a number of factors are important and the book charts the invaluable contributions of various Alzheimer's Associations and Societies: this provides a focus on dementia strategies and plans at national levels: the book reports on the state of affairs regarding such strategies and provides a unique insight into the process of how one of these was developed and implemented. Recognising the need to prove that service developments lead to a higher quality of care, increased productivity and increased efficiency, the book links the resulting picture to service-based research methodologies, with an emphasis on the strengths and limitations of that research. Contributions from 17 countries on 4 continents give an overview of the state of affairs across the world, paying attention to successful - and less successful - initiatives to improve dementia care. The book furthermore provides pragmatic approaches to ensure planning becomes reality, highlights the need for structured workforce development, education and training and describes the opportunities afforded by assistive technology. This book is of prime informative and practical value given that pressures on dementia services are projected to mount across the world against a backdrop of limited resources and expertise. Designing and Delivering Dementia Services Defines the problems involved in meeting an increasing demand for dementia care services in a poorer world Maps initiatives and developments in the design and configuration of these services in a variety of international settings Analyses these developments against the background of political and health economic circumstances Provides a road map of where health services should go in response to this growing challenge. The first book to define, analyse and map initiatives for dementia care services in a time of increasing demand and decreasing resources, this book is essential reading for commissioners, senior clinicians and service planners in health and social care. It will also be of interest to academic researchers involved in qualitative services research as well as quantitative health economic research, health and social care managers and those involved in workforce planning and development.

Description : The physical care of people with dementia is of vital importance, but so too is their emotional, social, mental and spiritual wellbeing. The creative arts are gaining increasing recognition not only as a tool for delivering effective person-centred dementia care, but also for attending to soul as well as body. Encouraging those who care for people with dementia to develop their own creative skills, this book provides a creative map of care with easy-to-follow examples and detailed case studies. After explaining why adopting a creative approach is central to effective dementia care, the authors go on to discuss meditation, singing, movement and storytelling, describing the therapeutic benefits of each and giving practical examples of how they can be used with individuals or groups. They also look at the importance of creative supervision in promoting creativity and creating a safe space for honest interpersonal connection: an essential foundation for effective teamwork. This book will be an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the care of a person with dementia, including professional staff in residential and nursing homes, hospitals and day centres, families and other non-professional carers.

Description : People with mid-stage dementia are served by special care units in long-term care facilities, although as these residents deteriorate, they are transferred out of the unit and into a general nursing home unit. These nursing homes are not equipped to deal with palliative needs of end-stage dementia care. The book addresses those needs. With this in mind, Part One examines the stages of dementia end-stage in particular. Other chapters in this section provide background on the hospice movement and hospice concepts; the idea of maintaining personhood; and administration of a late-stage care unit. Part Two focuses on treatment approaches for common needs in end-stage dementia - medical and physical care; a supportive environment; the fundamentals of care; psychopharmacology; and therapeutic activities. Part 3 contains chapters on family-centred care; legal and ethical issues; programme evaluation; and future opportunities.
