  2. 27th International Alzheimer’s Disease International Science Fact or Fiction 7 – 10th March 2012 London United Kingdom

  3. Person Centred Care:An Insider’s View

  4. Services targeted to the masses, rather than the individual...

  5. Person Centred Care • Define us by our assets • Speak to us, not about us • Work with us, not for us • Don’t diminish our symptoms • Value us • Individualise our support

  6. We are mothers, fathers, lovers, daughters, wivesor husbands, employees or employers, grandmothers, aunties, bloggers...

  7. Issues to be faced • Who will we become • A daily struggle between emotion and tasks • Further decline • Shame isolation and stigma • Grief and loss • Fear of loss of privacy • Death

  8. Dementia represents the end of dreaming, a long and unforgiving one way odyssey into obscurity, clouded in a thick and unforgiving fog.

  9. The Adelaide Cosy Club

  10. Dementia care is caring for people who often do not know they need care, and don’t want to be in care; no wonder they may become angry and upset!

  11. Thank you
