At a glance

The new discussion paper “Place, people, purpose and power – promoting the wellbeing of people living with dementia through personalised care and support” traces the history of personhood and dementia, its relationship to the personalisation movement more broadly and where we need to go next.

The paper, written by Neil Crowther, looks at the importance of sustaining personhood and wellbeing through the four interdependent dimensions of place & things, power & agency, people & relationships, and purpose & routine.

Intended to stimulate discussion and thinking, the paper is now available here on the DCAN website.  To find out more about more about why this work was commissioned, visit Ian’s blog.
