Increasing evidence has demonstrated that caregivers of dementia victims are at risk for depression and other medical problems. In what ways can health care providers improve or maintain the well-being of dementia caregivers?
This volume provides an overview of emerging themes in dementia caregiving research and presents a broad array of practical strategies for reducing caregiver distress, including interventions for specific populations such as ethnic minority caregivers, male caregivers, and caregivers with diverse sexual orientations. Innovative approaches include the value of partnering with primary care physicians to improve quality of life for both patient and caregiver and the use of technological advances to help distressed caregivers.
A timely, cutting edge book written for clinicians of varying backgrounds who provide direct services to families of dementia victims.
