Description : Personalisation builds on person-centred care to focus on how people with dementia can have more choice and control over decisions affecting them, and be supported to be part of their communities. This practical guide explains how to deliver personalised services and support for people with dementia through simple, evidence-based person-centred practices. The authors clearly explain personalisation and current person-centred thinking and practice, providing many vivid examples of how it has been achieved in community as well as residential care settings. They guide the reader through using a range of person-centred practices. Strategies for ensuring a good match between the person with dementia and the staff and volunteers supporting them are also described. In the final chapter, the reader is introduced to Progress for Providers, a photocopiable tool for tracking progress in delivering appropriate personalised support for people with dementia living in care homes. This is essential reading for dementia care practitioners and managers, as well as social and health care workers, community workers and students.

Description : Dispelling the myths about how personalisation works for people with dementia living in care homes, this book demonstrates how to introduce Individual Service Funds (ISFs), what works and what doesn't, and how to deal with difficulties and setbacks. Individual Service Funds are one way that people living with dementia can have a personal budget. The authors explain how they went about introducing the principles of ISFs to people living with dementia in a large care home in Stockport, without using any additional funding. They describe the person-centred practices used and the involvement of the council, commissioners, staff and families. Through clear and detailed stories and examples, they demonstrate the dramatic approach to quality of life for people with dementia the approach can deliver. There is a strong emphasis on managerial and organisational issues, including getting staff 'on board', providing adequate support, budgeting, building effective partnerships and implementing change. Providing helpful insights and examples for good practice, this book is essential reading for all those involved in providing personalised care for people with dementia living in care homes, including care staff, care home managers, local authority commissioners, service providers and policy makers.

Description : This book demonstrates very clearly how the personalisation of support and services works in practice.
