Many of us acknowledge that we lack the skills and knowledge to care well for persons with dementia. It is by recognising that persons with dementia are “fully human and alive” that we learn to connect or re-connect with them. Forming meaningful and enduring relationships is the key to delivering quality care. Person-centred care will change the way you look at dementia and provide you with the motivation and know-how to improve the lives of persons with dementia.
