The aim of this book is to provide an education resource for practitioners involved in organising services for people with dementia, including psychiatrists, neurologists, physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, social workers and even speech and language therapists. Younger dementia patients do not readily fit into any of the conventional mental health services, either for adults of working age or for older adults. Currently, old age psychiatrists generally lead services for this group. Younger dementia patients require specific skills to address their own needs, which are best delivered by a multi-professional team working in a multi-disciplinary way.
This timely book will provide all the information required to develop this type of dedicated service and will also be relevant for those who commission mental health services.
