Explores the very real challenges of dementia care.

More than 800,000 people in the UK are currently affected by dementia, a figure set to increase as the population ages. This book, addressed to carers and loved ones, explores how to handle the difficult emotions involved in looking after a loved one with dementia, such as denial, shame, anger, guilt and grief. It examines the harrowing process of effectively losing a person on a day-to-day basis, and suggests the best ways to maintain psychological health and well-being. Topics include:
Understanding the changes in memory, personality and behaviour
Developing an understanding of personal challenge
Overcoming loneliness and isolation
How family dynamics may affect the caring experience
The long goodbye - coping with progressive decline
Severe dementia and end of life care
Finding meaning in the experience is there a
positive side of looking after someone with dementia?
