The strength of the book is that Draper covers all aspects of dementia care, ranging from the purely medical to alternative therapies. He addresses often-asked questions such as those about nutrition and occupational exposures. Non-pharmacological approaches to management, such as reality and validation therapy, music therapy, and a myriad of others, are described and supported by research outcomes, if these are available. Ethical and legal issues associated with the care of a person with dementia are clearly explained. A glimpse into possible future treatments gives hope to readers.
