TOPIC D:
Person-Centered Dementia Care Approaches and Practices
Residents living with dementia benefit greatly from the evidence-based philosophies and methodologies of person-centered care. Person-centered dementia care leverages residents’ life stories, ethnicity, heritage, bucket lists, hobbies, interests, preferences, familial relationships, friendships, lifestyles, cultures, spiritual needs, socioreligious background, healthcare needs, et. al. to create individualized care services and personalized care delivery approaches. Person-centered dementia care empowers the residents’ and residents’ families/responsible parties to be fully informed by clinicians regarding diagnoses/health status while also being recognized as holistic person and care planning partners by the interdisciplinary care planning team. Through person-centered care, residents living with dementia retain the right to voice opinions, ask questions, and choose treatments/therapies/care services. Attendees will learn how implementing tenets of person-centered care in their communities benefits all stakeholders including residents/responsible parties, staff members, interdisciplinary team members, regulators, ombudsman, and the community at-large.
The purpose of this course is to help senior living staff members adhere to Title XXII regulations and industry best practices in utilizing person-centered dementia care philosophies and methodologies.
