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 : The number of geriatric psychiatrists, specialty fellowships, and practices has been declining relative to the increase in the number of older adults in the United States; critical shortages in care are the new norm. Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia was designed to address this predicament by enabling primary care providers to access a solid knowledge base and the clinical experience required to meet the needs of their patients with dementia. The author has written a concise yet comprehensive book that covers the full range of behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) encountered by patients, families, caregivers, and primary care providers. In addition, the book provides the necessary foundation for distinguishing the different types of dementia, critical elements of patient history needed to develop an appropriate treatment approach, and the basic medical examinations and lab work that should be performed. Each chapter begins with a brief précis; well-written descriptions of the major topic follow. The chapters explore the common types of behavioral and emotional symptoms and the important associated system issues relevant to dementia care, including elder abuse reporting, creation of advance directives and power of attorney arrangements, safety planning, and caregiver support.The book's strengths are many * Carefully chosen, realistic case examples bring the material to life in a vivid, compelling way.* An up-to-date review of the literature is presented, striking an appropriate balance between new and promising findings and current standard-of-care practices. The book also identifies significant gaps in the literature.* Standard-of-care pharmacological and psychosocial approaches in the management of BPSD are offered with a realistic understanding of the benefits and difficulties of implementing each.* Relevant information on complementary medicine is included, and the book covers personality, cultural, and spiritual domains so that the reader is cognizant of the whole-person approach in delivering dementia care.* Each chapter includes key points for quick and easy reference and resources to share with patients, families, and caregivers -- a boon to the busy clinician. * Although intended as a practical guide for clinicians in a variety of fields, those in academia who specialize in geriatric medicine or psychiatry will find the book a useful way to organize and teach this material to students, residents, and fellows. Pragmatic and clinically oriented, Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia will help primary care practitioners provide informed, compassionate care to older adults at risk for, or exhibiting, BPSD.

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."

Description : This paper presents a qualitative, arts-based exploration of art therapy as a method for advancing the goals of culture change in dementia care through the cultivation of interpersonal connection and emphasis on art-making in the present moment. Two conflicting paradigms in dementia care were identified - a biomedical emphasis on cognitive decline and the task-orientation of clock time, versus a person-centered approach emphasizing present moment experience and relational interactions in lived time. This study begins with an extensive scholarship review, examining the biomedical model, culture change, person-centered care, and concepts of clock time and lived time. Art directives were introduced to individuals living with dementia within a memory care facility during individual and group art therapy sessions, and facility staff during in-services and collaborative sessions with residents. Results of these interventions are presented through creative non-fiction narratives, followed by art-based analysis in the form of two stop-motion animations. Research findings suggest that personhood does not depend on orientation to clock time, as clock time is a culturally-bound concept; addressing the role of clock time within dementia care and introducing opportunities for lived time are significant components of the process of culture change. Art therapy can cultivate lived time in dementia care through nurturing relationships throughout the entire community, emphasizing exploration of materials and temporality over task-orientation, and using art materials as relational tools. Art therapy is uniquely suited to advance the goals of culture change as identified by Kitwood (1997). The study ultimately serves as a call to art therapists to utilize a person-centered approach and act as agents of change within biomedical institutions.

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." Mark Vincent, University of Northampton, UK "A very useful foundation book for those wishing to understand the challenges of dementia care. " Anthony Fraher, University of the West of England, UK What is the role of the community mental health nurse (CMHN) in dementia care? What knowledge and frameworks influence the way CMHNs practice in dementia care? How will community mental health nursing be driven forward in the future?

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.

Description : Section A reviews whether arts-based activities for people with a dementia (PWD) have significant cognitive, social, and psychological benefits for this population. There is a variety of theoretical perspectives on dementia that encompass the biological, psychological, and social effects of the disease on the wellbeing of PWD. Visual arts may be an appropriate way of addressing some of the challenges that PWD face by providing a means of ameliorating some of their cognitive, social, and psychological difficulties. Literature from the field of arts-based activities with PWD suggests that there is no apparent theoretical conceptualisation in the area, as most studies have attempted to evaluate various art programmes with no clear rationale for expected findings; rather, they have taken a more exploratory stance. However, they indicate that arts-based activities can have social and psychological benefits by increasing confidence, enthusiasm, enjoyment, social contact, mood, quality of life, and ratings of depression. The review concludes with a rationale for why it is important to expand the current evidence base on arts-based activities for PWD. Section B: Dementia refers to a variety of diseases that are characterised by cognitive difficulties and an overall decline in daily living skills. Arts and health interventions may be particularly valuable ways of improving the lives of PWD and their family carers. This exploratory study involved six people with mild to moderate dementia and six family carers attending an arts-based intervention at a major London art gallery for three sessions over three weeks, in which they engaged in art-viewing and art-making. Using audio recordings to record PWDs' responses, rather than standardised measures, which are often problematic with this population, the study sought to explore possible changes in cognition of PWD during the intervention, namely episodic memory and verbal fluency. Using a mixed methods design, data were collected at five points and analysed using content and thematic analyses. The findings suggested that episodic memory and verbal fluency appeared to improve during the art gallery-based intervention. This was substantiated by family carers who also reported that PWD showed increased mood, confidence and social interaction, and that they valued the shared experience and learning opportunity. Whether these changes can be attributed to the intervention is a matter for further research beyond this exploratory study. Future research is proposed to further understand the implications of these preliminary findings. Section C presents a critical appraisal of the research. Research skills that have been learned and developed over the course of the process are discussed, such as increased awareness of the benefits of working within a wider research community. There is consideration of the need to communicate clearly and sensitively with other professionals from differing backgrounds and organisations, as well as the importance of building on a coherent evidence base when designing a research project. Better organisation relating to recruitment and investigation into recording during the art-viewing sessions at the gallery are identified as aspects that would be done differently, as well as consideration of using a case study approach. Clinical consequences of the research are discussed, such as utilising a community psychology approach and involving art and creativity in therapeutic sessions. Finally, further research in the area is considered, such as by expanding the study and using robust neuropsychological measures to detect cognitive change.

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 : For the increasing number of people diagnosed with dementia each year, treatment in the early stages can make a significant difference to their quality of life. This book provides examples of psychosocial interventions: taking into consideration the individual, social and environmental aspects of the person's life. It looks at ways of providing support at the time of diagnosis and goes on to explore a variety of interventions and services for the treatment of early dementia. Bringing together the knowledge and experiences of professionals from both the UK and Europe, the contributors describe interventions for both psychological and practical problems with case examples such as memory support groups, art therapies and assistive technologies for use in the home. This accessible book will be essential reading for practitioners and carers working with those with early dementia and will be extremely useful in both professional development and for those new to dementia care.

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.
