The Impact of Culture and Faith in Dementia Care: Psycho-Social-Spiritual Healing
This book provides the reader with a deeper understanding of the symptoms and palliative care needs of patients with dementia and their families. The book addresses the unique role of different cultures throughout the world and how this impacts psycho-social–spiritual healing. By looking at how patients with dementia are cared for in low-, middle-, and high-income countries, we can not only learn about cultures globally but learn from one another about unique and special models of care. Our hope is that by learning from different cultures, care for patients with dementia and their families will improve on a global scale. The book will be very useful for anyone involved in care for patients with dementia and their families, including neurologists, primary care physicians, psychiatrists, and physiotherapists, nurses, nurse practitioners, psychologists, spiritual ministry, social workers and volunteers.
