Emerson has worked extensively with health and social care professionals and practitioners on the design of dementia care, support and services and on carer’s needs and priorities.

He has provided several written submissions on Dementia Strategy Framework, Dementia Carers Strategy, review of Community Day Care for Adults and the Carers Grant Scheme.

Among key features of care and support for people with dementia are challenges faced by carers and families in coping with behavioural changes, cognitive deficits and functional limitations of these individuals.

Emerson has packaged in this handbook the information needed to cope with the delivery of care and support along all stages of the dementia pathway.

In addition, it informs on current approaches to ethnically and culturally appropriate care and support on gender issues.

This book will be valuable to and is a must read for all those involved with this debilitating disease.
