Our “Dementia Reframed” Enquiry, will begin to tell a new and persuasive story about dementia, capable of sustaining a decade of collaborative change.
Our DCAN Enquiries gather the best ideas, evidence, and insights together from a range of perspectives, to learn what is needed to make positive change happen. Our learning helps to shape and support action nationally and locally as well as stimulate further research and innovation.
Key questions for this Enquiry are:
- What is the vision of the future we want to see?
- What are the principles we need to uphold?
- How does our understanding of dementia change through the lens of personalised care?
- How does language and attitudes need to shift if we are going to succeed in our aims?
- How do we need to start thinking, talking, and responding to dementia differently?
- How do we talk about personalisation in dementia care in ways most likely to encourage people to act?
- How do we make these changes inclusive and meaningful to all communities?
- How do we ensure a narrative of personalised dementia care in the NHS compliments related discourses in social care, healthy aging and people powered communities?
