Summary "Caregiving Across Cultures is a practical guide for professionals and care providers who are developing culturally-based techniques for the care of dementia-afflicted elders. This timely text offers a knowledgeable cross-cultural hands-on approach to the care of dementia-affected individuals and families." "In addition, the book details a variety of practical approaches to cross-cultural assessment, staff training, community outreach, and the development of linguistically-viable dementia care informational materials. This book will be useful for both the monocultural, English-speaking, and the bilingual-bicultural practitioner regardless of service or research setting."--Jacket.
