New book release - Living With Dementia

Authors Lars-Christer Hydén and Eleonor Antelius from CEDER have together with international colleagues released the book Living With Dementia. Relations, Responses and Agency in Everyday Life    

Traditionally, dementia has been defined primarily in terms of loss: loss of cognitive and communicative competencies, loss of identity, loss of personal relationships. However, in the last two decades this view of the person has been increasingly challenged, and the focus has shifted from one of care to one of helping people to live with dementia.

With contributions from an international range of expert authors, Living with Dementia strongly advocates this new perspective through in-depth discussion of what people with dementia and their loved ones can do, and how they can actively make use of remaining resources.
