Practice: Social Work in Action
This book is vital reading for all health and social care professionals who work with people with dementia. I have already made it recommended reading for Best Interest Assessors training on the module that I teach at the University of the West of England. Professionals and academics who work with adults with conditions, other than dementia, that affect capacity need to conduct comparable work to ensure that similar evidence for the maximising of opportunities to decide can be promoted.
The Journal of Ageing & Society
This book will be of interest to readers who are concerned by the issue of decicion-making in the context of dementia... this collection provides a robust contribution to developing an understanding of decision-making in relation to people living with dementia.
Plus Magazine - Christian Council on Ageing (CCOA)
A book that could and should radically affect the understanding and care of people with dementia across the globe.
I'd like to think this might become compulsory reading for all doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists and other clinicians working in the field, as well as lawyers who have begun to find more calls to their expertise.
Ethics and Social Welfare.
The book appears to be unique in the way that it draws together a wide range of different chapters offering perspectives and insights from the health and social sciences and legal domains. The editors and authors are to be congratulated on a successful contribution to the literature. The book is readable and illuminating and it will be rewarding reading for a wide range of thinkers, practitioners and policy makers.
