Improving quality of care given to people with dementia in care homes is a key national and regional priority. Although there are some excellent care homes there are also some concerns.
Supporting and caring for people with dementia is complex and demanding. Achieving good care in a care home requires relentless energy, enthusiasm and clear leadership.
Dementia care is a fast moving field. There is so much advice it is easy to feel overwhelmed. This guide provides information about best practice based on work in the South West and points you in the direction of where you can find out more.
This leaflet for care home managers and providers should be read in conjunction with the leaflet for care home staff.
