Working with older people in care can be challenging and frustrating, especially when they behave in ways that seem irrational, aggressive, or unreasonably repetitive, and nothing you can do seems to help. The authors of this useful and practical book explain how to understand the difficult and annoying ways in which older people in care can behave, (especially people with dementia), how to stay calm and kind, and how to solve the problems they can create. With many examples of everyday challenges and how to deal with them, this book has the potential to change your working life.
Older people who live in care facilities can feel powerless, and care staffs often aren't effectively trained to deal with the subsequent behaviours. New research in psychology and dementia addresses some of these issues with innovative theories and practical approaches.
