There can be a lot of understandable fear and worry when a loved one receives a diagnosis of dementia. Whilst the stigma of dementia can be powerful it should not restrict a person from finding meaning and purpose in life. Psychologists Dr Michelle Hamill and Dr Martina McCarthy ...believe that a holistic and relationship-centred understanding of dementia can help to acknowledge the challenges of the condition, whilst enabling people to live with dignity. This book provides insights and ideas to improve quality of life for both you and your loved one, drawing on the experiences of people who are caring for a person with dementia from our services. Through the book you will: understand dementia and the symptoms and behaviours that people with dementia can present with; learn communication skills and strategies that can help when caring for a person with dementia; and explore compassion-based care, develop resilience and improve your wellbeing. Whilst every situation is unique, this book will give you the confidence and advice you need to help you support your loved one.
