Confused, Angry, Anxious?
Sue Paxton Head of nursing and care, The Leonard Pulham Nursing Home, Buckinghamshire
Although uninteresting at first glance, this book certainly breathes new life into our understanding of how and why caring for older people can be frustrating, and how distress behaviours can be prevented and managed. It delivers a fascinating and uplifting read for staff of all levels, particularly those without mental health experience.
