Helping primary care to support people with dementia

Personalisation and dementia: a practitioner’s guide to self-directed support for people living with dementia

November 28 2011

This guide to personalisation and dementia has been written for, and with input from, people living with dementia, their families and friends, and the practitioners who support them.

Dementia Choices was set up by the Mental Health Foundation to explore self-directed support for people living with dementia. Self-directed support is a way for people to regain and remain in control of their lives. Self- directed support enables people living with dementia (and their carers) to have more freedom and choice about the social care services they receive. They can benefit from more flexible local support, which is paid for by local social services
