Supporting People with Dementia at Home details a groundbreaking
study of an intensive care management scheme designed for older
people with dementia that are at risk of entry into residential
care. The authors use a quasi-experimental approach to compare how
the individuals on the mental health team in one community were
matched to a similar community without the service. They analyze
the evidence focusing on the eventual placement of the individual
suffering, the quality of care they receive, and also the needs of
their carers.This book offers valuable evidence about the factors
which can maximize the independence and well being of older people
with dementia, from the perspective of older people and their
carers. For those who commission services, it is highly relevant to
service models for the National Dementia Strategy in England.
