Dementia Beyond Drugs
Dr. Power's eye-opening book challenges all care providers working with individuals with dementia to undertake a true operational change. Yes, you can move away from an institutional model — viewing individuals as patients defined by their dementia and using prescribed medications to control their "troublesome" behaviors — to an experiential model of care that treats individuals with dementia as the human beings they are, giving them the personal attention, respect, and dignity they deserve. Take advantage of the many benefits to this fundamental change in the provision of care, including a decrease in the need for mood-altering drugs. You will learn how to embrace more humanistic, enlightened practices that address the most common challenges in caring for people who live with dementia.
