The first two volumes of Care-Giving in Dementia integrated up-to-date neurobiological information about dementia with specific developments in care-giving. Taking the same multidisciplinary approach, and drawing contributions from leading practitioners, this third volume will prove invaluable to health and mental health professionals caring for people with dementia.

Key themes in Volume 3 include: personal construct psychology and person-centred care; living in lifestyle groups in nursing homes; music therapy for people with dementia; support programmes for caregivers of people with dementia; coping in early dementia; stress and burden on care-givers; the Alzheimer Café concept and new support groups for people with dementia; ethical issues in the care of elderly people with dementia in nursing homes.
