From the internationally acclaimed author of the groundbreaking and award-winning book Dementia Beyond Drugs comes another eye-opening exploration of how to improve the lives of people with dementia and those who care for them. In this revised edition-including updated facts, studies, and terminology-Dr. G. Allen Power demonstrates how to achieve sustainable success in dementia care by changing the caregiving lens to focus on well-being and the ways in which it can be enhanced in people living with dementia.

Revealing how drug-based interventions as well as completely holistic approaches consistently fall short of addressing and meeting the needs of people with dementia, this book offers a proactive approach-one that challenges widely accepted dementia care practices and provides a compelling new framework for developing more effective dementia services.

Through in-depth examinations of seven domains of well-being, readers will discover how current care practices erode them, and the transformative approaches that can restore them, plus

  • how to apply a well-being approach to the everyday care of people living with dementia
  • a highly adaptable framework that can be adopted in any living environment
  • valuable insight on overcoming physical and operational barriers to well-being
  • a wealth of person-centered, strengths-based approaches to care

    Filled with true stories that demonstrate the power of a well-being approach to greatly improve the lives of people with dementia as well as those who care for them, this book presents methods that promise a new and hopeful vision for achieving the best possible outcomes for every person living with cognitive changes. Readers will be challenged, motivated, and profoundly inspired.
