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.
This book provides examples of psychosocial interventions: taking into consideration the individual, social and environmental aspects of the person's life. It looks at ways of providing support at the time of diagnosis and goes on to explore a variety of interventions and services for the treatment of early dementia.
