Rerson C entered Approaches to Dementia and Importance of Relationships and Teamwork
Person Centrered Approches to Dementia
We view the person with dementia as 'a whole', and considers how the person is influenced by factors beyond the physical changes in the brain. Our person centred approach to dementia care focuses on the needs of the individual rather than on the priorities of those providing the support.
Person Centered Carers
Our Organisation has person centred carer who will recognise that some individuals may not be fully able to look after their own well-being, but will seek to provide a positive response that enables the individual to be involved in their care where ever possible by compensating for their losses and building on their strengths and abilities.This in turn will help to promote independence and enhance a person’s sense of agency and sense of worth.
Applying good person centered care planning
We use a Good person centered care planning based on the strengths of the individual has been increasingly recognised as a crucial part of providing a high standard of service for individuals who are living with a form of dementia.
Importance of Relationships and Teamwork
Relationships are extremely important to a person who has a form of dementia, just as they are to any person, however owing to the effects of their condition and changes in social circumstances, many people may find it difficult to maintain their relationships. Failing memory could mean that the individual may no longer remember or recognise members of their family. Similarly, a move to a care home may result in a loss of confidence or as a result of the move, the person may find it difficult to communicate their needs. We encourage individuals to communicate in any way that they are able.
Even if a person with dementia finds communication difficult, there are steps that care workers can take in order to make the process a little easier. It is important that the way you communicate with individuals makes sense to them.
