This textbook is for preregistration nursing students, as well as for other healthcare and social care students in prequalifying education programs. The text is aligned with the Curriculum for UK Dementia Education and the requirements of the Health and Care Professions Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council. The text’s plain language writing style, real-life vignettes of patients and families, and emphasis on living well with dementia make the book accessible to family and informal caregivers as well. After an overview of types and symptoms of dementia, coverage encompasses social policy, assessment, case management, risk management, pharmacological and psychological interventions, technological approaches, and end of life care. The book’s two-color layout includes chapter-ending summaries and quizzes. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
