Focusing on theoretical, policy and practice issues which are increasingly identified as key priorities, the contributors to this important book examine the ways in which dementia care is evolving around the globe. They explore the latest theory underpinning dementia care, the applications of this theory in dementia care research and how this research is influencing and shaping practice. Written by practitioners, policy influencers and researchers who draw on case studies from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, France, India and Malta, the book forms the basis for a worldwide dialogue of interdisciplinary initiatives and ideas. Insights into how policy and regional and national dementia strategies are developed, and the range of innovative approaches that can be taken in practice, mark a positive step towards ensuring that the needs of people with dementia around the world are met, both now and in the future.
This book makes essential reading for practitioners, researchers, policy makers and students in the field of dementia care.
