Confused, angry, anxious? Why working with older people in care really can be difficult, and what to do about it

Authors:
ELVEN Bo Hejlskov, Agger Charlotte, LJUNGMANN Iben
Publisher:
Jessica Kingsley
Publication year:
2017
Pagination:

Place of publication:
London

This book offers practical guidance on how to understand the difficult and challenging ways in which older people in care can behave, (especially people with dementia), how to stay calm and kind, and how to solve the problems they can create. Working with older people in care can be challenging and frustrating, especially when they behave in ways that seem irrational, aggressive, or unreasonably repetitive. Older people who live in care facilities can feel powerless, and care staffs often aren't effectively trained to deal with the subsequent behaviours. With many examples of everyday challenges and how to deal with them, this book addresses some of these issues with innovative theories and practical approaches. (Edited publisher abstract)
