Overview

Today's health care systems demand demonstrable results. Finally, here is a method to tackle the challenging task of assessing the true quality of life of people with dementia. Dementia Care Mapping (DCM) is a cutting-edge assessment tool that lets you directly observe and measure a resident's or client's quality of life. Now, get invaluable feedback on what works and what doesn't in your dementia care program! In this book, you'll learn about the principles of person-centered care that underlie DCM and how these universal principles have influenced the use of DCM in diverse care cultures around the world. International experts in DCM discuss how the method can invigorate staff caregiving practices, reducing older adults' excess dependency and actively promoting their everyday competence. See how Dementia Care Mapping can dramatically transform the culture of care in your facility as it reveals how you can: develop resident/client care plans that visibly improve the quality of life of people with dementia improve staff development and training by learning to recognize opportunities for intervention overcome staff members' resistance to change influence organizational policy for effective implementation of DCM use DCM to justify and secure financial support for programming from managed care and insurance providers, Medicare, and other private and government funding streams or agencies introduce its person-centered care approaches to the traditional medical model of care Nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, gerontology, and social work students and future facility managers and dementia researchers who are committed to improving dementia care should not be without this groundbreaking book. Anthea Innes is a research fellow at the Centre for Social Research on Dementia, University of Stirling, Scotland, and was formerly part of the core research group at the Bradford Dementia Group, which developed DCM.
