A significant number of care home residents are living with complex needs associated with dementia. It is imperative therefore that a determined effort is made to ensure they have equal access to the care and support services they require. Indeed it has been acknowledged that in some areas, like our own, care home care is dementia care given 70 – 80% of our residents are living with some level of cognitive impairment. Understanding dementia and understanding the needs of people living with the disease supports the delivery of many other elements of care that impact on overall health and wellbeing, and this is especially important in advanced stages of the disease when seeking to really understand the person can be most challenging.
