There are always difficult day-to-day decisions to be faced when caring for a person with dementia - from knowing how to deal with wandering to end of life decisions. Many of these decisions are underpinned by value judgments about right and wrong and reflect a particular view of dementia. This book considers these ethical decisions in the context of relationships, treatment, safety and quality of life, offering practical guidance and advice. It draws on the experiences of family carers as well as on existing research and emphasizes the importance of empathy and the need to acknowledge different perspectives in order to reach the best decision for the person with dementia. In particular, the authors discuss the way that decision makers are themselves changed by the decisions they make, and the impact of this on the decision-making process. This book should be read by all those who work caring for people with dementia.

Review:

The authors of this worthy book state that the aim is "to help carers of people with dementia...non-family, formal carers" (p.9). They take guidance from researh (Alzheimer's society) with family carers and I have no doubt that this book would be of comfort to these such carers too... Anyone invloved with a person woth dementia becomes more expert in ethical issues. (Dementia Journal)

As I get older, I would be very pleased to discover that those who might end up caring for me would have at least some of the insight and clarity of thinking of these two excellent authors. In particular, I recommend this book for medical students for they should have ethical literacy as part of their basic tool kit. (Cambridge Journals)

The book is written in an accessible style, with plenty of case examples to bring life to the issue. This book is recommended for all professionals who care for these individuals, as it helps to redress the balance of the heart of caring with the technical aspects of caring. (Clinical Psychology Forum)

Ethical issues is one of the Bradford Dementia Groups good practice guides and is intended for all those who care for people with dementia. It is well written and clearly presented. It aims to help in making all types of difficult decisions. Every situation is unique - there are no universal right answers "being more reflective" is the message implicit in every page. (CHS Heart Magazine)
