"Dementia in adults with Down syndrome or with intellectual disabilities is a rapidly growing field of health and social care. There is, however, limited information available for families and health care providers on how best to manage associated behaviors and difficulties. This book is the first published book to provide day to day practical advice on how to care for a person with Down syndrome or with intellectual disabilities who suffers from dementia." - PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
