Leena Mary Emmatty,

An Insight into Dementia Care in India
 
 
Most literature available on caregiving discusses forms of care and programmes for the elderly in the west. An Insight into Dementia Care in India, based on original research studies will help bridge the gap between the literature of the west and the reality in India. It explores the caregiving scenario and surveys the existing research studies on dementia. The book deals with:

"Epidemiology, common types and causes of dementia;

"Profile of caregivers, changing trends in caregiving and the system of care followed;

"Various caregiver activities that are involved in providing care;

"Need for person-centered care and support to persons with dementia and their caregivers;

"Psychosocial assessment and management of persons with dementia and their caregivers;

"Psychosocial interventions suitable in the Indian context; and

"Services available for persons with dementia and their families.
