"This volume should be on the shelf of every clinician who works in a medical setting, and will be a must-have textbook for graduate courses. It is unique in its combination of powerful and practical clinical examples with evidence-based assertions, all with a very clear focus on person-centered care. If you've ever had a question about the best communication interventions in dementia, you'll find it in this book." - Jacqueline Hinckley, Voices of Hope for Aphasia, St. Petersburgh, Florida, USA "Understanding, assessing, and managing the problems of individuals with dementia and their caregivers is possibly the hottest topic in speech-language pathology today. Similarly, person-centered approaches not only to dementia but across the entire spectrum of speech, hearing, and language disorders are an area of rapid growth and change. For practitioners and students who wish to stay current in these areas, this book is simply required reading." Audrey L. Holland, University of Arizona, USA "This information-packed edition provides a rich array of assessment and intervention approaches to address cognition, communication, eating, and swallowing challenges in people with dementia. The authors highlight principles of quality of life, independence, and relevance. Speech-language pathologists in the US will find content on reimbursement strategies to be particularly helpful." - Brooke Hallowell, Springfield College, USA "This book is masterfully written, covering critical topics ranging from definitions and diagnostics to interventions, with a focus on abolishing nihilistic attitudes and moving towards a multi-disciplinary, humanistic, and holistic approach to dementia care. Person-centred, evidence-based therapeutic interventions are critically researched and clearly described, with a focus on strategies aimed at improving function and enhancing quality of life. This book is an essential resource for all professionals working in dementia care." - Gail Elliot, DementiAbility Enterprises Inc., Burlington, Ontario, Canada
