The authors cover a variety of evidence-based clinical procedures for the memory, communication, and behavioral challenges of people with dementia to help speech-language pathologists (SLPs) implement practices that elevate the personhood of people living with various dementia syndromes.

Throughout this clinician-friendly text, the authors cover three main areas of focus: (1) elevating personhood, (2) the “how-to’s” of clinical procedures, and (3) the organizational-level barriers and facilitators to implementation. After an introductory chapter, the next eight chapters describe detailed case studies that explain specific person-centered assessment and treatment methods. The cases depict a diverse group of people providing insights into the range of concerns and joys involved in supporting memory and communication in a manner that is culturally responsive and equitable.

Key Features:

  • Incorporates a culturally responsive approach to cases that reflect the increasing diversity of the aging population.
  • Provides specific examples of the “how-to’s” of person-centered, evidence-based care.
  • Chronicles detailed personal, assessment, and treatment histories for each case—with a table of goals and intervention procedures as well as illustrations of memory and communication strategies.
  • Each chapter starts with an “At-a-Glance” section to highlight the person featured in the case study and ends with a summary of key points of the treatment and implementation factors.
  • Provides boxes, tables, and figures that support the text.
  • Offers a companion website with additional assessment forms, data collection sheets, photo examples of memory and communication strategies, and functional maintenance plan templates.
