This second edition of "Dementia with Dignity" should be required reading for everyone involved in the care of people with Alzheimer's and other dementias. Both those who care for their relatives at home and professional workers will benefit from this book. For all those who are dealing with dementia for the first time, it will do much to alleviate your fears: for those working in the area it will give you new insight into how you can work with understanding, courtesy and respect. Barbara Sherman is a world-renowned expert on the issues that concern carers - memory loss, and other changes that affect the personality and mood of the person with dementia. In simple language she outlines problem-solving approaches to handling behaviors such as repetitiveness, losing and hiding items, evening agitation, and sleeplessness.This book gives carers at home an insight into nursing homes and dementia hostels and an understanding of what they should expect from these residential facilities. In addition, much attention is paid to the wellbeing of the carer. With compassion and some humour the author describes the techniques that will make coping with each stage of the illness as painless as possible: everything from the problems associated with lack of mobility or incontinence, to establishing power of attorney or the move to a residential facility. The book also contains a list of resource organisations, a glossary and bibliography.
