Reviews

It is often easier to adopt the value of person-centred care without being clear what it means in terms of day-to-day practice reality. This book excels at being very clear about exactly what the processes involve and gives suggestions for how they should be undertaken. -- Research, Policy & Planning
Like many (but sadly not all) training materials, this guide is set out in a format that is easy to read and adapt. The section on cognitive ability is, as the authors comment, surprisingly absent in much training material for people supporting people with dementia. -- Dementia
One of the Bradford Dementia Goup good practice guides, this book will be well used by carers working with older people. It offers up-to-date and theoretically sound information, with practical assessment forms that can be photocopied... This is an excellent resource for staff in care homes who want a comprehensive guide to planning care for people with dementia. -- Nursing Standards, Gary Blatch, Dementia Strategy Manager, South Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust, Southend-on-Sea
I greatly enjoyed reading this well-presented, practice-orientated publication and positively recommend it. I agree with the authors that there has never been a better time to promote new ideologies and positive ways of working with people with dementia. -- Quality in Ageing and Older People
I found this book to be useful and practical. One of its strengths lay in its participatory intentions and if practitioners followed these guidelines, they would go a further step towards enhancing service user and carers' confidence in the purpose of planning and attention to sharing information on a more equal footing when thinking about how care and support can bre enriched within different environments. -- British Journal of Social Work
At last, here's a superbly thought-out and designed tool and format for care planning... This book is truly a "good practice guide" and has all you need to use care planning properly, but you'll have to work at it because you have to understand what you're doing... Buy it and USE it!. -- Standards for Practice
The whole ties things together very neatly and the book will be treasured by those who use it. Let us hope that this will be many, for these pages will help people turn good intentions into good practices. -- For Dementia Plus
