This good practice guide uses a person-centred approach to improving the quality of physical, social and psychological support for people with dementia. It is a useful resource for those living with dementia, their carers, and those working with them. Chapters cover enriched care planning, life story work; lifestyle and future wishes, health, capacity for doing, cognitive ability and life at the moment. Templates are provided for each chapter to help the person and their carer(s) to gather the information needed and to document person-centred actions and interventions. Real case examples are used to illustrate the care planning process. The approach has been piloted within a range of different dementia care settings including nursing and residential homes; housing schemes and with family carers.
