Care Homes: Checking Progress in Delivery of Personalised Support for People With Dementia (HSA Press)

[A version of this item appears in: Dementia: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT), Volume 3 Issue 1, August 2012].

Summary

This document from HSA Press is intended primarily for managers of care homes supporting people with dementia of all types, at all stages. It could also be of interest to relatives of people with dementia looking for a care home and who wish to know how to assess the homes they visit.

This is a self-assessment tool for managers to use, with their staff, to check how well they are delivering personalised support for people with dementia. The tool provided here was developed by providers, commissioners and academics with experience in personalisation and supporting people with dementia, working in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society. Personalised support involves tailoring support to the individual, enabling them to exercise choice and control over their service and life where possible.

Craftily re-launched and re-promoted in December 2012.
