Human flourishing new meaning to living with dementia

WEBINAR: Human Flourishing, Bringing new meaning to living with dementia (19 Nov 2020)

Event Type: Webinar
Supporting Aged Care Quality Standard: 3 1

Person-centred dementia care is taken for granted in much of the dementia literature, yet it is difficult to imagine an argument against person-centred dementia care – in intention at least.

But what does it really mean for persons living with dementia, their care partners and care workers? Professor Brendan McCormack will make the case for person-centredness to be a core philosophy for everything we do, for us to think about person-centredness at every level of decision making and for us to seek every opportunity to make it 'real' in everyday acts.
