I was honored to lead the development of the best practice recommendations for creating a person-centered dementia capable long-term care workforce for the new 2018 Dementia Care Practice Recommendations.
The National Alzheimer’s Association 2018 Dementia Care Practice Recommendations outline recommendations for quality care practices based on a comprehensive review of current evidence, best practice and expert opinion.
The recommendations were developed to better define quality care across all care settings and throughout the disease course. They are intended for professional care providers who work with individuals living with dementia and their families in residential and community based care settings.
The National Alzheimer’s Association 2018 Dementia Care Practice Recommendations are comprised of ten topics. The articles are published in the Supplemental Issue of The Gerontologist; each article provides more detail about the specific recommendations, as well as the evidence and expert opinion supporting them. For an overview of all 56 recommendations in the articles, click HERE.
