Focusing on theoretical, policy and practice issues which are predicted to become fundamental priorities in the near future, the contributors to this important book examine how dementia care works around the globe. They explore the theory underpinning dementia care, the applications of this theory in the latest dementia care research and how this research is influencing and shaping practice. The contributors are leading practitioners, policy influencers and researchers who analyse case studies from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, India, France and Malta with the aim of encouraging a dialogue and exchange of interdisciplinary initiatives and ideas. Their insights into how policy and dementia strategies are developed, and the range of approaches that can be taken in dementia care practice, are 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.
