Thursday, July 28, 2022

Congratulations to Boyd Davis, Professor Emerita, on her new co-edited volume Dementia Caregiving East and West: Issues of Communication (Cambridge Scholars Publishing). This book pulls together current practical and adaptable communicative approaches to dementia care from western and eastern researchers, promoting cross-collaboration and global sharing of information. The editors note that in dementia caregiving, communication with the caregiver is widely seen as the most helpful non-pharmacological means of assistance, especially in the family-care context. This collection discusses communicative interactions involving caregivers, whether local or migrant, professional or family, that are an important part of global aging and aging education. The contributors are senior and junior researchers in anthropology, art therapy, counseling, gerontology, linguistics and nursing.
