The purpose of this site:
- to help promote good dementia care through providing information, newsletters and supportive educational / teaching materials.
- to be an arena for innovations and ongoing developments in the new field of care-giving in dementia (or dementia care).
- to highlight the less visible aspects of caring- the constant balancing and support required to link the ‘external requirements’ and ‘inner aspects’ of caring well
At this site, all aspects of caring will be acknowledged- the frustrations and failures as well as the achievements and successes. Concepts, guiding principles, current research, anecdotes will be added to the site regularly via newsletters.
