White Paper Detailing Values, Practices and Recommendations for Person-Centered Dementia Care Issued

By February 14, 2013

Follow me on:

The Dementia Initiative, a national effort that includes a wide array of dementia care experts from across the U.S. representing the practice, policy and research sectors, have released "Dementia Care: The Quality Chasm," a white paper framing consensus values, practices and recommendations for person-centered dementia care.

Given the staggering financial and caregiving demands of dementia, our country is facing significant, if not crippling, societal challenges if effective ways are not identified to better address and manage the needs of people who have dementia and their care partners. Person-centered practices are not only the most humanistic and desired practices, but are the most effective and financially cost-efficient ones as well.

Led by CCAL-Advancing Person-Centered Living, the participants of the Dementia Initiative intend for this consensus white paper to provide guidance about person-centered dementia care, and for it to serve as a call to action to begin transforming the culture of dementia care in our country.
