Care-giving in dementia is a new speciality with its own rapidly growing body of knowledge. This second volume of contributions from leading practitioners and researchers around the world is a handbook for all those involved in 'hands on' caring, or in planning care, for persons with dementia. Volume 2 of Care-Giving in Dementia provides a rich source of information on most recent thinking about individualized long-term care of both dementia sufferers and their families.
Key themes in Volume 2 are:
* the subjective experience of dementia
* the provision of care for family carers
* differing cultural perspectives of dementia
* the crucial importance of life-history information for understanding a person's reaction to their illness.
Chapters on the search for an ethical framework and the best environment within which to provide care are particularly timely.
