Dementia Tailored Resources

NICE (National Institute for Health and Social Care Excellence) recently launched the website, Tailored resource for carers and care providers on supporting people to live well with dementia.  The resource is intended for care givers as well as care providers.  It outlines 10 quality statements, their key messages and key resources for a greater understanding of quality of care.

The quality statements include:

  1. Discussing concerns about possible dementia
  2. Choice and control in decisions
  3. Reviewing needs and preferences
  4. Leisure activities of interest and choice
  5. Maintaining and developing relationships
  6. Physical and mental health and wellbeing
  7. Design and adaptation of housing
  8. Planning and evaluating services
  9. Independent advocacy
  10. Involvement and contribution to the community
