In recent years, there has been a positive shift in attitudes towards caring for older people with dementia, with a new emphasis being placed on the person rather than the problem and towards a relationship-centred rather than individual approach. Within this context of person-centred care, there is a growing recognition of the significance of a person's spirituality in providing them with a sense of identity and a resource for coping. "Spirituality and Personhood in Dementia" offers an interdisciplinary discourse on spirituality in dementia care, bringing together wide-ranging contributions from leading theoreticians, theologians, researchers and practitioners. The book provides health care professionals with both a rationale and a practical understanding of the important role spirituality can play in the affirmation of personhood. This comprehensive and thought-provoking collection includes contributions from international authors, discussion of inter-faith relations and spirituality for the non-religious, as well as chapters approaching the subject from Christian and Buddhist perspectives. This book will be valuable reading for nurses, care workers, care commissioners and pastoral support professionals interested in a more holistic and contemplative approach to caring for older people with dementia.
