(p.21) Chapter 3 The view of the person with dementia
Supportive care for the person with dementia

Daphne Wallace

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the author's own story about being diagnosed with dementia at age sixty-five. For the past twenty-five years, in the National Health Service (NHS), she worked in psychiatry of older people, latterly as a consultant psychiatrist in Leeds for over twenty years. She looked after older people with many mental health problems, but inevitably a large number with dementia. She knew the implications of a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and of other types of dementia. She talks about support for dementia, living with dementia, person-centred care, and spiritual well-being.
