'This book is an excellent reminder of why patient-centred care is important and desirable for everyone concerned with the outcomes of hospital admission for people with dementia. It outlines logical ways of delivering care that are supported by evidence and also makes the argument for efficiency which is important in the current climate. Its simplicity is its strength.'
- Vicki Leah, consultant nurse

'This book is both interesting and helpful in many different ways providing practical advice and possible solutions to help staff to consider the person and their psychological /social needs and not simply as the 'confused' patient with a physical ailment. This book should be on every shelf of every ward!'
- Caroline Baker, Director of Dementia Care at Barchester Healthcare and author of Developing Excellent Care for People Living with Dementia in Care Homes

'Struggling to think of a situation with a higher risk of the loss of self and well-being than that experienced by people with dementia in acute hospitals, which is why this book, bringing to life an improved approach to care through personal narratives, is highly recommended and warmly welcomed.'
- Tessa Gutteridge, Director of YoungDementia UK

'This is essential reading for acute hospital healthcare professionals caring for people with dementia. Insightful case studies link evidence based frameworks to practical ways of improving care for people with dementia in hospital. Its accessible format means you can quickly dip into the issues relevant for you.'
