"Previously the 'Supporting Derek' resource provided introductory information and suggested activties to help staff support people with learning disabilities and dementia. In this revised and updated edition, the authors have developed a structured training programme that will enhance the learning of the whole staff team, with a self-study guide included to benefit staff or volunteers who may find it difficult to attend formal training. The training will be valuable to all health and social care pratitioners who support people who have a learning disability and dementia, or who are at risk of developing one and people who have a learning disability who live or work alongside people who have dementia." - BOOK JACKET
