eBook supports dementia carers

The Dementia Guide for Carers and Care Providers is a free eBook and app developed by Health Education England’s Thames Valley team in collaboration with healthcare professionals, educators and carers. The guide provides practical information for anyone caring for a person with dementia and is broken down into six sections:

  • Understanding dementia – what it is, its symptoms and treatment
  • Day-to-day living – looking after the person with dementia, yourself and the family
  • Support – people and organisations who can help
  • Legal and money – advice and sources of help
  • Symptoms and behaviours – a look-up guide
  • Medical terms – definitions of medical terms and abbreviations which medical professionals may use.

The guide is available for free from iBooks, the Kindle Store and Smashwords or alternatively as an app through the Apple App Store.
