Supportive care for the person with dementia

This chapter argues that communication should be central to how we think about dementia and how we work with those who live with it. As for the emerging concept of ‘supportive care’ for people with dementia, it offers some thoughts about this idea generally, and about where communication should fit in. It explores three main ideas about what this thing called supportive care might look like, and where communication fits in. These ideas are illustrated with examples, quotations, and stories.

Keywords:   dementia care, communication, supportive care, dementia
