A new handbook has been published to offer carers and families practical advice to support the health and wellbeing of people living with dementia.handbook

Co-authored by Lisa Hee, the director of healthy ageing and dementia programs at CQUniversity, the book draws on Lisa’s extensive experience as a nurse and researcher in aged care and higher education.

The book, Practical Insights into Caring for Someone with Dementia, is focused on the practical day-to-day issues of caring for a person with dementia and has been written as an easy to understand guide with useful hints and tips for carers.

A chapter is also dedicated to self-care.

“This book is designed to assist those caring for a person with dementia, a person who has been diagnosed and anyone interested in dementia and its impact. It is not a text book,” the authors write.

The guide has been reviewed and shaped by the experiences of families caring for someone with dementia and is available in paperback and ebook.
