Dementia Care Mapping
October 15-18, 2018: Dementia Care Mapping for Realizing Person Centered Care
Location: The Neighborhoods by Tiger Place, Columbia
Dementia Care Mapping (DCM) is a method to evaluate the delivery of person centered care and, in general, to improve the quality of care delivered to persons with dementia in formal care settings. DCM goes to the real heart of caring by striving to assess care from the viewpoint of the person with dementia. It involves making and recording detailed observations. DCM provides valuable, clear and reliable information for those concerned with quality care for people with dementia. After the data is analyzed, immediate feedback can be given to care partners so that existing practices can be analyzed and improved.
