Rural and Remote Dementia Care

As the number of people affected by dementia continues to rise, there is a need to examine the research and practice evidence on dementia care in rural and remote settings around the world. The book ‘Remote and Rural Dementia Care – Policy, Research and Practice’, by  Professor Anthea Innes, University of Salford (UK), Professor Debra Morgan, University of Saskatchewan (Canada) and Professor Jane Farmer, Swinburne University of Technology (Australia), does this. For practitioners, researchers, academics and policy makers, the book is an essential review of evidence and strategies to date, and a guide to future research needs and opportunities for improvements in rural dementia practice.

This Collection brings together some of the key policy and research reports that explore the experiences and requirements of those living with dementia and those caring for them in personal and professional capacities in challenging geographical locations.
