Description

Person-centred dementia care relies on leadership that supports the ongoing process of learning about and valuing individuals, their feelings, strengths and needs, and using this knowledge to enhance wellbeing and create a positive care environment.

With a strong practical focus and many helpful case examples, this book will equip readers with the practical skills, knowledge and confidence necessary to lead person-centred dementia care. The areas explored are relevant across a wide range of care settings, and to all those in, or starting, either a managerial or non-managerial leadership role within a dementia care service. Topics covered include the key goals for person-centred dementia care, and the type of leadership approach most likely to bring them to fruition; common barriers to person-centred dementia care, and how leaders can identify and combat them; how to nurture, support and empower staff; how to maximise the effectiveness of verbal and written communications; and how as a leader to respond to challenging situations and risk.

This accessible book is essential reading for all those with a formal or informal leadership role within a dementia care service, including managers, deputy managers, team leaders, service managers and experienced care staff involved in leading or mentoring others.
