An eldercare think tank has released a new white paper with practical ideas for person-directed dementia care.
In “Elevating Experience for those Living with Dementia,” The Beryl Institute offers perspectives from experts in the field as well as those living with the condition.
Contributors include Thrive Senior Living’s Chief Experience Officer Tammy Marshall, clinician-researchers, and representatives from elder-advocate organizations The Eden Experience and The Pioneer Network.
Opportunities for action are focused on three recommendations:
- Apply a person-directed approach to caregiving and support systems
- Support societal changes aimed at improving the experience for people living with dementia
- Place human rights and personhood at the forefront of care for those living with dementia
