Opportunities and Obstacles
Written for all those concerned with providing services for people with dementia and their families, this book explores the idea that communication is not only possible but also vital to the understanding and the development of services. The book is based on a series of interviews with sufferers and professionals working in the field.
This book explores how well-being is not about physical health alone; having purpose in life and continual spiritual growth are vital elements for older individuals. This book provides guidance on how the particular spiritual needs of this age group can be defined and addressed, and how meaningful care and support can be given.
Addressing the Challenge of Disability in Later Life
This collection examines theological and ethical issues of ageing, disability and spirituality, with an emphasis on how ageing affects people who have mental health and developmental disabilities. The book presents ways of moving towards more effective relationships between carers and older people with disabilities.
Fresh Air on My Face
This important book simply but persuasively demonstrates why we should provide the opportunities for people with dementia to experience the great outdoors. The contributors explore many different ways in which people with dementia can experience and interact with nature.
Offering an inter-disciplinary approach to spirituality and personhood in dementia care, the contributors to this book are leading practitioners and researchers in the field. They provide both a theoretical structure and a practical understanding of the essential role that spirituality can play in the affirmation of personhood and identity.
