About the Authors
  • This book represents a new turn in approaching dementia. It is a manifesto which sets out important principles about the nature of dementia both as a disease and as a disability and explores how a values-based, person-centred and rights-based approach can be applied to every aspect of the experience of dementia. Using vignettes, the book covers a variety of issues such as diagnosis, treatment, care, social attitudes, research, public policy and funding. It reflects the considerations of the patient and their carers as well as the perspectives of healthcare professionals, researchers and policy makers. The Dementia Manifesto promotes the concepts of 'values' and disability rights, as well as the growing focus on creating an environment for people to live well with their condition. It will appeal to a range of clinicians, practitioners, academics and students from a variety of specialties.

    • Brings the light of values-based practice to bear on dementia and dementia care
    • Readers will see that dementia is not just a clinical condition but one that needs a broader view to incorporate ethical, social and political views surrounding it
    • Uses vignettes to highlight the multifarious issues that can arise in connection with dementia
