In this webinar, Dr Davis explores the tensions between the lived experience of people with dementia and the institutional dominance dictating the goals of dementia care.
It looks at our tacit agreement with the way things are in dementia care, with particular attention to the language we use to talk about people with dementia in the care context. It also addresses why governments and care organisations have been so slow to adopt different perspectives that meet the needs of people with dementia, in the community and residential aged care setting.
