Progress for providers: Checking your progress in delivering personalised support for people with dementia
This practical tool, produced by Helen Sanderson Associates and sponsored by health and social care leaders in the North West is designed to help care homes to self-assess and improve their practice in delivering personalised support for people with dementia.
This publication is primarily for managers of care homes supporting people with any type of dementia, at any stage. It may also interest families of people with dementia who may be looking for a care home and wish to know how to assess the homes they are visiting.
'Personalised support' is a key aim of national policy and means tailoring support to the individual, and enabling them to have as much choice and control over their service and life as possible, rather than supporting everyone in the same way.
