It recognizes the need for aninter-disciplinary approach and for continuity of care. Supportive care in dementia must, therefore, be broad in its scope and application. Supportive Care for the person with dementia provides just such a broad and full perspective, drawing upon the experience and expertise of a wide range of internationally-based professionals to outline a model of supportive care that will provide good quality and holistic care for people withdementia. Making-use-of real-life reports from both patients and carers to help readers fully understand the reality of dementia, the book examines the key principles that guide the practice of supportive care.
