Dementia is Everybody's Business - working together to achieve a shared South Island model of care
A regional model of care for dementia services to reflect best practice and ensure consistency across the South Island.
The majority of people with dementia are still living in their homes in our community. This means that it is likely that many services, including health and a full range of social, recreational and commercial services, are likely to be offered to people with dementia. The guidelines have been developed to ensure the approach and environment is conducive to appropriate service delivery.
The toolkit can help engage and encourage teams to identify what is working well with their delirium care, and where improvements could be made.

It cannot display all features – but does include many things that need to be present for restorative, person-centred services.
