For over 20 years it has been used by care practitioners to improve quality of life for people living with dementia in a range of care settings, including care homes and hospitals.
Dementia Care Mapping™ prepares staff to take the perspective of the person with dementia in assessing the quality of the care they provide. It empowers staff teams to engage in evidence-based critical reflection in order to improve the quality of care for people living with dementia.

Dementia Care Mapping can be used for different purposes including: quality monitoring and improvement; individual assessment and care planning; review of key times of the day; staff development and training needs analysis. It has been used as part of a developmental, supervisory framework for staff who support people living in their own homes; and with other vulnerable groups of people who have communication difficulties.
