Dementia: walking not wandering

Fresh approaches to understanding and practice

Mary Marshall and Kate Allan

This book is designed for those working with people with dementia in care homes, hospitals, day care centres and the community. It argues passionately that for people with dementia walking should neither be feared nor discouraged by professional carers, and especially not classified as challenging behaviour. Instead, walking should be viewed as an activity, fully understood, with significant potential and benefits. This book is for you if you work in dementia care.
