Current community care policies and increasing numbers of older people needing assistance mean that all social workers must be up-to-date in their knowledge, skills and attitudes towards people with dementia and their carers. This book is a revised and updated edition of the popular Working with dementia. Written by experienced social workers, it provides guidance on best practice in a readable and jargon-free style.Social work and people with dementia:· Brings together the very latest thinking in medical, social and citizenship approaches;· covers often-neglected areas such as sexuality and the design of the built environment;· provides contextual information about the old and new cultures of care; and· discusses skills such as communication and practical assistance.This book is essential reading for social work and social care students, social workers undertaking CPD, and social and care workers transferring to dementia care from other fields.
