Focusing on What's Left: Person-Centered Dementia Care

Focusing on What's Left: Person-Centered Dementia Care

Focusing on What's Left: The Heart of Person-Centered Dementia Care" emphasizes a shift in perspective towards recognizing and nurturing the remaining abilities and strengths of individuals living with dementia. This approach prioritizes dignity, empathy, and the preservation of identity, fostering a supportive environment where individuals can thrive despite cognitive challenges. By giving focus on what remains rather than dwelling on losses, caregivers can enhance quality of life and promote meaningful connections with those in their care.

By centering attention on the capabilities and interests that persist, caregivers can tailor activities and interventions to align with each individual's unique needs, preferences, and strengths. Targeted focusing enables caregivers to cultivate moments of joy, purpose, and connection, enhancing the overall well-being of those living with dementia. By acknowledging and amplifying what remains, Focusing on What's Left" promotes a more holistic and enriching approach to dementia care, centered on the enduring essence of each person.

That's the topic of this week's guest with The Dementia Nurse, Donna Marentey
