Summary
"Dementia Beyond Drugs shows plainly and eloquently why we must change the way care is provided to our elders and how it can be accomplished. Embracing humanistic, enlightened practices that address all the common challenges in dementia care, this book reveals what it takes to effect real culture change within residential care settings while reducing the administration of unnecessary psychotropic drugs." "Full of visionary and practical advice, Dementia Beyond Drugs: Changing the Culture of Care is an essential read for anyone involved in the care of an individual with dementia, including nursing staff, social workers, occupational therapists, medical directors, and administrators in all elder care settings. Family members of individuals with dementia and students breaking into the dementia care field will also benefit from its insights and advice."--BOOK JACKET
