Summary

Dementia in Close-Up is a clear and practical guide to dementia and the world of the dementia sufferer.
Bere Miesen assumes no medical or specialist knowledge and uses first hand accounts and real-life examples to examiners on patterns of behaviour and responses of sufferers and their carers. He focuses on the complex and varied relationships between the sufferer, their family and professional carers, and explores the conflict that can sometimes be engendered by dependency, fear and sustained closeness.
Going beyond the purely medical descriptions of dementia, Dementia in Close-Up strives to give families and health professionals the means to form caring and rewarding relationships and to help everyone involved.
