This tool provides the basis for enhancing person-centredness of facilities providing care for people with dementia. The package contains 39 statements about five domains central to person-centred care; the care environment, staff attitudes towards people with dementia, staff knowledge of dementia, the organisation of care, and the constituents of care provided. The individuals targeted for this educational package are firstly asked to decide to what extent they feel the statements correspond to their experiences of the facility, and to put a cross in the box for the alternative that comes closest to their experience. Secondly, each dimension and item in the package is to be used for reflective group discussions about the current facility, with an aim to identify areas for improvement.
