Release Date: 2015-11-21
Genre: Health & Fitness

What is person-centred dementia care, and how can it be used to improve care for people from diagnosis to end of life? How can we improve services in people's own homes, in care homes, in supported housing and in hospitals? This substantially updated second edition considers recent developments in person-centred care, presenting refreshed guidelines for practice. Dawn Brooker and Isabelle Latham explain the evolution of the key principles of person-centred care that comprise the VIPS model. They describe how it has been applied in diverse service settings, and show how to put the model into practice. A new chapter dedicated to culture of care will help service managers to get to grips with this slippery concept, and includes important information on how to guard against neglectful practice. Case studies from the CHOICE programme, a research project on culture of care, demonstrate the key factors that are important for people living with advanced dementia and complex needs to live well.
