Color & Control:

The Dementia Handbook

By Judith Cornish

Providing dementia care is profoundly stressful for families and caregivers but what is often missed is the fact that people with dementia often experience emotional distress, leading to behavioural complications and the need for institutional care. However, if care providers can empathetically identify the emotional needs caused by dementia and understand which skills are lost and which remain, Cornish believes they can lower behavioural complications and their own stress at the same time.
