This is Me Now
This is Me Now a new approach to maintaining the dignity and identity of residents with end–stage dementia and severe communication difficulties. Questionnaires are completed by care staff and family members to collect a ream of information about the resident (see below) is information about what matters to the resident now, the ‘little things’ that make adifference like being able to see out the window. This information is then transformed into a narrative account of the residents likes and dislikes and what helps them throughout the day often peppered with relevant information gained from their life story.
Two questionnaire forms have also been devised which are available for download, the first relates to relatives and the second to carers.
