The Living Well with Dementia Course: A Workbook for Facilitators will be an indispensable guide to providing support to people after they have received a dementia diagnosis. The workbook provides facilitators with a realistic but positive approach to helping people with dementia understand and adjust to their condition, helping them to live as well as possible.

This workbook outlines the Living Well with Dementia course, a post-diagnostic course for people who have recently received a diagnosis of dementia. Its session-by-session structure, along with e-resources including handouts for course participants, will help facilitators provide a realistic but positive approach to support after a diagnosis.

Aimed at facilitators, and drawing on the authors' many years of clinical and research experience, The Living Well with Dementia Course workbook will be of great assistance to healthcare professionals and support workers in many different settings, including specialist NHS dementia services, primary care services and the voluntary and community sector.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is so much more than a workbook for running a course! 'Living Well with Dementia' is a phrase that has become very over-used in recent years. Whilst it is a great aim, many people struggle with how to achieve living well on a practical level. Richard Cheston and Ann Marshall have been helping people to adjust to the changes that dementia brings for many years. It is full of their wisdom. It will be a go-to resource for those with lots of knowledge about dementia but who feel less sure about how to use counselling skills to help people adjust emotionally. Likewise, it will be very helpful to those who may feel confident in their counselling skills but who do not know how to apply these to support those living with dementia. I highly recommend this book."

Professor Dawn Brooker, Director of the Association for Dementia Studies, University of Worcester

"I wholeheartedly commend this comprehensive guide to those seeking to deliver or draw extra benefit from this Living Well with Dementia course. As someone who has tried to live well with dementia for eight years, I know how beneficial it would have been to me. After diagnosis, my wife and I attended two afternoons designed to lead us away from the 'cliff edge' to which I was clinging; I am totally convinced that this would have been far more successful had this excellent guide been available at that time."

Keith Oliver, Alzheimer's Society Ambassador and 3 Nations Dementia Working Group

"The emotional impact of developing dementia is immense, and without support many people struggle to adjust. The Living Well with Dementia course is unique in its focus on enabling people with dementia to reflect and share their experiences and find a way to talk about and accept what is happening. In this accessible guide, Rik Cheston and Ann Marshall provide a session-by-session outline for course facilitators, supported by in-session activities and handouts, practical tips on how to plan, prepare and run the course, and advice on training and supervision. This is a `must read' for anyone involved in supporting people living with mild to moderate dementia."

Professor Linda Clare, University of Exeter
