Informed by the authors hands-on experience of being a Carer, and by her work in dementia care and palliative care, this book is a contemporary exploration of the field.With the real words of staff and residents from two, very different, dementia care homes, the author examines how, at every level, human relationships are vital an idea which is becoming increasingly recognised and accepted across the UK and beyond.Holding Time offers a predominantly psychoanalytic contribution to dementia care, the author draws on a variety of perspectives to illuminate her understanding what she observes in the care-home setting. The focus throughout are the experiences of all those living (and working) with dementia, and, crucially, how we can make the experiences better.
