Psychosocial Dementia Care
The principles of Person Centred Care (PCC) undergird the care planning at AHL for each and every Person with Dementia (PwD). Hence, activities to enable, engage, empower and enthuse for each PWD is guided by each individual’s needs (clinical, cognitive, physical, and/or psychological) and interests, as well as what is important for the person to live well.
Regardless of the stage of dementia, every interaction and activity is designed to unlock each individual’s potential, guided by the 4Es Model ( Enable, Engage, Empower, Enthuse ), to create quality of life in the home, in the lodge, as well as in the community.
There are currently 5 innovative strands of psychosocial care supporting people with dementia as a whole-person, to compliment the excellent clinical and nursing care provided.
