Is dementia nursing undervalued?


Missy01 | 8-Oct-2012 10:26 pm I agree with your points. But even if nursing patients with dementia wasn't 'an enriching experience' I still think that these patients are still people: even if we can't fully work out what they are experiencing, and they can't fully tell us, dementia patients still have experiences - surely they deserve to be cared for in ways that make 'their experience of life better' ? Even if caring for them is challenging. Not valuing people who seem to have no contribution to make, was the philosophy of various people/states in the first half of the 20th century, and we all know where that went !
