Dementia: Sustaining Self in the Face of Cognitive Decline
AbstractIt is argued that the way in which we view a person with dementia can have a significant effect on the level of disability and wellbeing of the person.

This article seeks to examine the differing approaches to self and personhood in dementia care, and establish ways of approaching care for the person with dementia which may limit the extent of disability in the face of cognitive decline.
