Person-centred care when supporting hygiene routines for people living with dementia

24 Nov 2021
Innovation Theatre

Approximately 50 million people worldwide live with dementia, with the condition affecting more than 60% of long term care residents.

While caring for a resident with dementia can be incredibly rewarding, the nature and complexity of the condition means that as it progresses, residents can develop responsive behaviours that can create challenging situations and moments of friction in the care environment.

For a resident living with dementia, continuing their personal hygiene habits can be challenging, so providing personalised care can lead to a more relaxing and enjoyable experience with benefits for the persons wellbeing and quality of life.
