Dementia care presents a huge challenge to health and social care both now and in the future. The number of those in the UK with dementia is expected to increase to 1.4 million in the next 30 years. Regardless of the field of nursing, all nurses need to understand the experiences of a person with dementia and the issues related to their care. This book provides an introduction to dementia care for nursing students with an emphasis on humanizing care.
