Person Centred Dementia Care (2nd edition)
This book is a brilliant tool, explaining in a structured and easy to follow manner how to improve service interventions for people who have Dementia in all settings from individual, care or residential homes, supported living and hospitals. It presents the VIPS practice model and explains clearly and effectively how this has been put into practice and how this improves quality of life for individuals, drawing on many UK case study examples to illustrate from the CHOICE programme to illustrate. 2016.
"Dawn Brooker and Isabelle Latham truly "get it" and see the world through our eyes. They reach new horizons, powerfully enriching person-centred care so that we are known, understood, enabled and our humanity nurtured. Read, reflect and apply this work, to change "the way we do things here". A great text and a must-read for all care workers and managers!"
"A welcome new edition of a favourite text, it's both a manifesto for excellence in dementia care and a practical guide to providing and assessing person-centred care. Lots of case examples and the wisdom of the authors shows us exactly what good dementia care looks like."
