Ethical Issues in Dementia Care : Making Difficult Decisions Paperback

Part of the Bradford Dementia Group series



Bradford Dementia Group Good Practice Guides There are always difficult day to day decisions to be faced when caring for a person with dementia - from knowing how to deal with wandering to end of life decisions.

Many of these decisions are underpinned by value judgments about right and wrong and reflect a particular view of dementia.

This book considers these ethical decisions in the context of relationships, treatment, safety and quality of life, offering practical guidance and advice.

It draws on the experiences of family carers as well as on existing research and emphasizes the importance of empathy and the need to acknowledge different perspectives in order to reach the best decision for the person with dementia.

In particular the authors discuss the way that decision makers are themselves changed by the decisions they make, and the impact of this on the decision-making process.

This book should be read by all those who work caring for people with dementia.
