The tool, This is me, was first developed by the Northumberland Acute Care and Dementia Group and is supported by the Royal College of Nursing.
Recently updated, it is now relevant for people with dementia who are receiving professional care in any setting - at home, in hospital, in respite care or a care home. It was originally developed for people with dementia who were going into hospital.
This is me is a simple and practical tool that people with dementia can use to tell staff about their needs, preferences, likes, dislikes and interests.
It enables health and social care professionals to see the person as an individual and deliver person-centred care that is tailored specifically to the person's needs.
