Teaching Dementia Care

Skill and Understanding

Dementia afflicts millions of Americans and deeply affects the lives of their loved ones. Good care has been proven to have a significant effect on the quality of life of a person with dementia. To ensure good care, staff members of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and adult day-care centers, and providers of home care must be thoroughly and continually trained by qualified and well-prepared professionals.

Nancy L. Mace, coauthor of The 36-Hour Day, has created the ultimate teachers' guide for dementia care training. Rich with information and with tools for effective communication between teacher and student, the text supplies instructors with in-depth lessons and includes relevant charts, tables, and handouts, which may be customized to suit specific programs.

Good training is the foundation for a confident and competent caregiver and supports the dignity and well-being of persons with dementia and their families. With her unmistakable compassion, humor, and wisdom, Mace has provided a much-needed guidebook for better teaching and better care.

Reviews

"This book makes a unique and significant contribution to the literature on the care of persons with Alzheimer disease. It provides very specific and comprehensive information to professionals, enabling them to educate caregivers so that they provide competent and compassionate care. Everything needed by the educator is provided—even summaries of key content in slides or overheads, and problem-solving exercises so students can acquire new strategies and caregiving techniques. Nancy Mace has provided professionals and direct caregivers with an invaluable resource. Thanks to this book, students will have direct access to one of the truly great teachers of the care of persons with Alzheimer disease."—Laura Reif, R.N., Ph.D., Graduate Program in Gerontological Nursing University of California, San Francisco
