Overview

The views of older people with dementia need to be applied to the design, management, evaluation and implementation of the services that support them. Looking at the roles of those who decide on how, what, where and when care is given, as well as those who deliver care, this book addresses three fundamental questions:

* Why should we access the perspective of older people with dementia?

* How should we attempt to achieve this?

* What are the implications when we do so?

The way in which society supports older people is gaining increasing public and media attention, as is the accountability of the care services to their clients. Including the Person with Dementia in Designing and Delivering Care shows how we can adapt everyday interpretive skills to root service design and care delivery in the concerns and expectations of people with dementia. This book will be an invaluable resource for all those involved in the planning and provision of support services for older people with dementia.
