Editorial Reviews

Indian Journal of Social Psychiatry

Simplicity of language and explanation of technical terms in most places have made the book less esoteric and readable to non-professionals related to dementia care…An index of various terms used in the book could be a ready reckoner for the readers. The readers would find the appendix listing professionals and institutes related to dementia care very useful. Overall, mental health professionals, researchers and individuals related to dementia care would find this book helpful.

Perspectives in Social Work

The book is valuable for both professionals and care givers alike…This book can also be used in teaching related subjects such as Disability, Social Problems, Health Problems and Services, and Therapeutic Intervention. It serves to teach practitioners and also care givers working in the institutions and in private and public hospitals in India. It also serves as a reference book for social workers, educators, medical staff and students, researchers and psychologists. It outlines the existing research studies on dementia and explores the care giving scenario in India. It is strongly recommended for stakeholders and anyone else who would like to know more about dementia care in India.

Journal of Health Management

This book will serve as a reference book for students and research scholars studying psychology, psychiatric nursing, social work and rehabilitation. Professionals like psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses and paramedical staff, and caregivers working with the elderly will also find the book to be valuable.
