Quality of Life Outcomes for People with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia Care Planning Tool for Providers Outcomes, Indicators, Measures & Related Good Practice
The Dementia Outcomes Planning Tool has been developed to provide a structured approach to examining and planning for quality of life issues with people who have dementia. The guiding principles and specific information allow care providers, in collaboration with care managers and consumers, to personalize and focus planning and monitoring of care for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. Although these guidelines are general, it is expected that they be used to identify specific things that are important to the individual that can be followed, monitored and measured over time in order to insure that the person’s quality of life is fully supported. This Tool Recognizes Certain Values in Dementia Care:
