What is dementia care?
Effective dementia care is all about prioritising the individual – not the condition. Values such as dignity, self-determination, purposeful living, respect and choice are therefore at the forefront when establishing a person-centred care plan.
Delivered in the setting of a care home, this involves ongoing collaboration between the resident, their loved ones and their nursing carers. A secure environment, an established daily routine and compassionate round-the-clock care are the foundations for outstanding care.
