This toolkit aims to help professionals in their support of people living with dementia in their homes and facilitate consistency and good practice.
Overall, the Charter aims to:
- Equip housing sector professionals with information and additional resources aimed at improving knowledge and understanding of dementia so that they work in a way that minimises risks and enhances wellbeing for people living with dementia.
- Explain how and why housing and housing related services can improve the lives of those living with dementia, and their families and carers, and
- Encourage organisations to make or improve existing action plans in order to future proof their organisations and services, and sign up to deliver a number of the Commitment Statements within the Charter.
