This essential textbook on dementia care introduces the knowledge that nurses need, including the evidence base for practice and the guidance to transfer this newly acquired knowledge into everyday practice. Each of the 25 chapters are written by experts in the field of dementia care and are grounded in thoroughly researched, up-to-date evidence, have a direct bearing to nurse practice, and use case studies to give examples of application of the evidence to practice.

It begins by introducing dementia as a diagnosis, a syndrome, and a set of diseases, signs and symptoms. It then deals with various principles that underpin dementia care, including person-centred care, behaviours that challenge, risk management, and understanding relationships affected by dementia. Finally, it assesses dementia care across a range of care settings, such as primary care, care homes, domiciliary care, acute hospital, and hospice services.


It is far too easy to include 'dementia' in the nursing curriculum for student nurses and in CPD programmes for nurses, but it is quite another to ensure engagement with the diverse and complex needs of persons living with dementia and those affected by it. This book for nurses and nursing students should be the 'go to' resource in ensuring that all nurses have a sound starting point for understanding how to meet people living with dementia as 'persons' with all their diversity and complexity - just like the rest of us!
— Professor Brendan McCormack, Head of the Divisions of Nursing, Occupational Therapy & Arts Therapies, Queen Margaret University, Scotland

This book is a valuable resource on best practice care for people with dementia. Its accessible chapters, authored by experts in the field, summarise the contemporary evidence-base and present practical case examples on a wide range of essential topics from diagnosis to end of life care.
— Professor Claire Surr, Director of the Centre for Dementia Research, Leeds Beckett University
