Using Dementia Care Mapping to Provide Person-Centered Care to Individuals with Dementia presented by Dementia Care Mapping Trainer De Minner, RN BSN.
Training for caregivers of persons with dementia is often framed in terms of "tips for dealing with difficult behaviors/skills to manage persons with dementia" - but such an approach does not recognize the dignity of personhood of the individuals involved. The "behaviors" at issue are actually expressions of the unmet needs of a person with dementia. Dementia Care Mapping is an empathetic observational tool and process to understand the expressed needs of persons living with dementia. This needs based tool helps caregivers recognize what needs each individual might be expressing and enables the long-term care community to better meet those needs.
