This accessible, interactive resource book encourages front-line staff working with dementia sufferers in nursing and residential settings to examine their working practice and modify it to where appropriate to meet best practice guidelines. Packed with photocopiable training exercises, discussion points and questions to prompt care workers to reflect on their style of work, this practical training manual also provides a framework for care work in line with statutory requirements and national training standards. It can be used as a self-training guide by carers, who can work through it at their own pace or under the supervision of a colleague, or by trainers running structured courses on good practice in dementia care. It is also suitable for use as a quick reference in daily practice. This comprehensive resource will provide useful guidance for all staff working face-to-face with people with dementia, whether in nursing, day-care or residential settings.

The Department of Health has developed an ambitious and comprehensive strategy for dementia, Living Well with Dementia (February 2009). Yet, despite the Department stating that dementia is now a national priority, it has not been given the levers or urgency normally expected for such a priority and there is a risk that value for money will remain poor unless these weaknesses are addressed urgently. Dementia was not included in the Department's tier 1 Vital Signs indicators for the NHS, through which it monitors performance. Other levers such as joined-up commissioning and comprehensive performance information, are not yet fully developed. Achieving transformation in the proposed five years will be very challenging. The Department does not have evidence on current and future costs and benefits; the strategy is likely to cost much more than the estimated £1.9 billion over ten years. The Department expects implementation of the strategy to be mostly funded through efficiency savings arising from the acute hospital and long-term care sectors, though the NAO foresees difficulties in achieving this. There is no basic training for healthcare professionals on how to understand and work with people with dementia. Strong leadership is also key to improving services, but this is not yet in place in local NHS and social care delivery organisations, nor is there enough joined-up working between health and social care services for people with dementia. The report points out that there are some examples of excellent practice which could already be making a difference if they were adopted across the country. But it is not clear that services are making best use of money.

This book is a guide to understanding the important issue of stigma - `associated disadvantage' - which affects not only those who are excluded from society, but also family members and friends. Social Work and Disadvantage explains the impact of stigmatization on siblings, families and workers in the caring professions and its consequences for the people it affects and for society as a whole. Contributors provide evidence from research and professional practice on transferability of health and social problems in, for example, dementia care patients, drug users and looked after children. Providing key messages for practice, they outline a range of protection measures to reduce the risk of stigma and victimization. Social Work and Disadvantage provides valuable advice and guidance for social work and health care practitioners, educators and students.
