A resource book for family carers, staff and other professionals to help them care more effectively for people with Down’s syndrome and dementia.
The book focuses on practical day-to-day issues, including:
- supporting the person with Down’s syndrome and dementia to maintain skills and independence in every way and for as long as possible
- understanding and responding appropriately to changes in behaviour during the early, middle and late stages of dementia
- improving the confidence of carers to look after individuals
"It has the potential to be of real practical benefit and is written in accessible language."
