A Model for Enhancing Independence and Self-Management for People Living With Dementia (JGCR)

Summary

An article from Japan proposes a model for self-management support, entitled “Self-Management of Autonomous Interdependent Life Empowerment (SMILE)”. Five factors for helping to preserve social function include:

  1. A focus on individuals’ retained functions and strengths, rather than their deficits.
  2. Shared decision-making.
  3. Optimising personal initiative in decision-making.
  4. Aiming for a state of “autonomous interdependence”.
  5. Preservation of reciprocal, mutually beneficial, relationships.
