SCIE has launched a new Social Care TV video to coincide with World Alzheimer’s Month and World Alzheimer’s Day on Saturday 21st September. It explains the importance of “getting to know the person with dementia, learning about their memories and experience, and understanding the person’s history and their likes and dislikes”.
This approach to understanding the person helps in providing person-centred care and support, thereby enhancing each individual’s quality of life.
