The Big Picture
Our last post about person-centered care is one of our favorites. So is this week’s Big Picture info graphic.
We spend a lot of time talking about Alzheimer’s worries and concerns. It’s great to be able to deliver good news: Caregivers can dramatically improve the lives of people dealing with dementia.
We can’t stop or reverse Alzheimer’s. Yet.
We CAN help our loved ones live better days with Alzheimer’s. We can focus on our loved ones’ comfort and well being. We can make sure
- They live in communities that treasure them.
- They enjoy ongoing relationships with family and friends.
- They’re treated kindly.
- They’re recognized as individuals.
- Their dignity and privacy are preserved.
- They enjoy meaningful experiences each day.
Everyone who plays an important role in your loved one’s daily life should be committed to providing person-centered care. That’s especially true of those who create or oversee care plans.
We’ll discuss your relationships with care providers in our upcoming post. Subscribe and check back for Step 4: Partner.
