Each person’s experience of living with dementia is different. Our person-centred approach ensures we provide timely, skilled and well-coordinated supports from diagnosis to end of life to help achieve the outcomes that matter to each person.
Are developed in line with the Scottish Government’s national dementia strategy, and are focused on maximising independence, accessing appropriate medications, and enabling people to live as independent and fulfilled life as possible alongside those important to them.
Start by agreeing a support plan that is unique to each person and captures their individual requirements and desired personal outcomes. We do not deny the reality that many people with a diagnosis of dementia find the world increasingly confusing and frustrating, but we choose to focus on people’s interests, strengths and dreams yet to be realised.
A support plan may include:
- Remaining valued as a person we all care about
- Maximising independence in the home, including with medication, health and wellbeing, and adapted environments
- Connecting with local resources and support networks
- Managing finances and accessing appropriate benefits
- Communicating well with family and friends
- Staying involved in social activities and choosing to try new things
We are tenacious and do not give up on people, even as the dementia appears to change their personality.
