Metamorphosis in Care

Our perceptions of dementia and what dementia care should
constitute have changed dramatically over the past 20 years. 
Research has uncovered a mass of information concerning all aspects
of dementia. This wealth of information should be reflected in a
dramatic change, indeed a metamorphosis, in the way people with
dementia are cared for. No such change has occurred.

Dementia - Metamorphosis in Care will address the need
for change and provide practitioners with a means of understanding
why adhering to the old model ? the medical approach ?
can be damaging in current care settings. Practitioners are advised
on what is needed from them in order that they can positively
influence the lives of those living with dementia. The importance
of the role of professional carer and the responsibility they carry
regarding whether or not care improves, is underlined throughout
the book.
