Involving Families in Care Homes: A Relationship-Centred Approach to Dementia Care

In this accessible guide the authors outline ways in which care homes can help families to become partners in the caring process. Using case examples, quotations and research-based evidence, the authors offer advice and guidelines for supporting relatives who choose to be involved in the care of people with dementia living in a care home.

The premise of the adaptive response model is that armed with the knowledge of human systems and their ability to adapt and adjust and with a firm application and emphasis on person-centred approaches to dementia care then the experience can be enhanced and living with one of the dementias can be made less traumatic.

This holistic approach proposes a method of using environmental and social psychology to maximise function in the individual and to minimise the negative and destructive elements of the perceived and real environment.

Contents include:

• The biological domain • The psychological and social domains • Modern contexts of dementia care

• Stress and adaptive responses • Adaptive response • Stress • Manipulating the social and built environments
