Edited by:


August 1994 | 185 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Innovative approaches to dementia care in the nursing home are the subject of this volume. The contributors combine specific applied research findings and programmes in examining such topics as: addressing needs; developing multidisciplinary care teams; finding alternatives to restraints; and integrating the family into the care team. Special programmes designed to accommodate patients, including special care units, in-house day care, nursing unit-based services and social day care, are described. Also explored are: legal and ethical issues related to dementia; reimbursement; staff training; and increasing costs.
