Characterizing care

Abstract

This chapter considers the conceptual problem: how do we characterize the care that is due to people with dementia in such a way as to capture all its possible, desirable, and necessary aspects? It identifies the problems lying behind the conceptual question as being to do with the dichotomies and divisions inherent in the different approaches to dementia care. The conceptual conclusion has led in the direction of supportive care, which is a suitable way to characterize the nature of the care owing to people with dementia. Even at this preliminary stage, the supportive care model envisaged allows room for the full benefits of the palliative care approach and good quality end-of-life care to be harnessed, whilst still accommodating the biopsychosocial and spiritual dimensions of holistic care from the time of diagnosis.
