Working effectively with people with dementia and their families

Social care professionals and family members can express concerns around connecting, engaging, living and working with people with dementia. In particular, professionals working in adult social care have an important role in ensuring that people living with dementia and their families receive good support. 

To support Dementia Action Week, Research in Practice for Adults has released an open access blog and webinar recordings, as well as bringing together learning resources to support work in this area. The resources aim to build the confidence of practitioners in meeting the needs of people living with dementia and their families.


Working effectively with people living with dementia and their families: Recorded Webinar (open access until 31 May)

Providing an overview of dementia and drawing on strengths based approaches, this series of clips provide practical examples of how practitioners can work positively with people affected by dementia. They aim to build the confidence of practitioners in meeting the needs of people living with dementia and their families.

'We are moving away from the traditional focus of working separately with a carer and person living with dementia, with their unique set of problems all in splendid isolation of each other.'

In our blog for Dementia Action Week, Damian Murphy emphasises the rights, the voice and lived experience of people living with dementia.
