This unique guide is specifically designed for dementia carers with English as a second language. It is a concise compendium of current thinking on person-centred dementia care that features sample vocabulary and sentences ideal for working specifically with dementia patients. It focuses on the importance of good day-to-day communication skills and positive interaction between patients and carers during different activities. Whether used as a self-study aid or alongside any of the available training courses, it is a must for all carers with English as a second language working in care homes, hospitals, hospices, home support or any other supporting environment.
"…clearly organised to cover the most challenging aspects of communication with a person with dementia. The self-check sections in each chapter are good for establishing that the text has been understood correctly. There are excellent examples of activities and explanations of significant historical events. This is clearly an important topic and this is a fine book for anyone who wishes to further their understanding."
