The Dementia Guide for Carers and Care Providers offers practical information for anyone caring for a person with dementia and has been developed by our Thames Valley team in collaboration with healthcare professionals, educators and carers. The guide aims to support an understanding of the progressive nature of dementia and the challenges a person caring for someone with dementia may experience. Its focus is on living well with dementia.

The guide:

shares information that will help support the journey of those with dementia, once they have been diagnosed
acts as a tool for carers and care providers, working together and using the guide establish greater knowledge and understanding of what is required when a person is diagnosed with dementia
answers questions from carers and care providers about services that will be required to support them and the person they are caring for
provides information in a language that is understandable to all, highlighting that dementia is everyone’s business, emphasising that the person with dementia is central and that they should receive the advice and support they need to live well.

If you have an eReader, the Dementia Guide for Carers and Care Providers eBook is available for free from iBooks, the Kindle Store and Smashwords or alternatively as an app through the Apple App Store.

Can't find any easy way to access/download the file/book. Why couldn't they have it as a PDF file? Bloody stupid.

Main PC uses Linux that i can't see any way of accessing the file on. Used my old PC that has Win7 on. Went through a lot of rigmarole to set up a smashwords account, the file downloads but crashes the Abobe Digital Editions program - so still can't read it. & this is aimed to people who may be starting to suffer with or suffering with dementia. Fucking stupid - i wonder how much money they wasted on all this? & i expect it's all the same old information crap on it all & Nothing on how to access any practical support or what to do in a day to day practical sense. Pissed me off.
