Making Difficult Decisions
This book considers ethical decisions in the context of relationships, treatment, safety and quality of life. It draws on the experiences of family carers as well as on existing research and emphasizes the importance of empathy and the need to acknowledge different perspectives in order to reach the best decision for the person with dementia
Exploring the Interface
Based on papers from the Centre for Research on Personhood in Dementia workshop, experts discuss the interface between dementia, personhood and decision-making. Drawing on a range of perspectives, the book forges new understandings of relationships between informal decision-making and formal biomedical or legal processes for assessing competence.
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.
