Explores the very real challenges of dementia care. Worldwide, over 45 million people suffer with dementia, a figure set to increase as the population ages. This book, addressed to carers and loved ones, explores how to handle the difficult emotions involved in looking after a loved one with dementia, such as denial, shame, anger, guilt and grief. It examines the harrowing process of effectively losing a person on a day-to-day basis, and suggests the best ways to maintain psychological health and well-being. Topics include: * Understanding the changes in memory, personality and behaviour * Developing an understanding of personal challenge * Overcoming loneliness and isolation * How family dynamics may affect the caring experience * `The long goodbye' - coping with progressive decline * Severe dementia and end of life care * Finding meaning in the experience - is there a `positive' side of looking after someone with dementia?
