Dementia Care Mapping

An observational tool described by Kitwood (1997) as

“a serious attempt to take the standpoint of the person with dementia, using a combination of empathy and observational skill .”

(Dementia Reconsidered:the person comes first)

  • Focuses on an individual person’s experience

  • Guides and supports care away from being task centred and towards person centred

  • Identifies and supports staff training & development needs

…..I’m now conscious that I haven't really been listening to people I care for…..
