Marginalised groups and marginalised areas of dementia research, care and practice
Examining important issues in dementia research and care that are often neglected, the contributors to this book provide fresh perspectives on current practice. The authors put dementia care into a socio-cultural framework, highlighting the impact of social change on dementia care over the last two decades and challenging current stereotypes.
This book offers new insights into the application of a well-established approach to people who have traditionally been thought not to benefit from them. It demonstrates that rehabilitation has positive outcomes for people with dementia's quality of life and self-esteem, especially if rehabilitation is seen as a positive philosophy of practice.
