Abstract

The quality of dementia care rendered to individuals and families is contingent upon the quality of assessment and care planning, and the degree to which those processes are person-centered. This paper provides recommendations for assessment and care planning derived from a review of the research literature. These guidelines build upon previous recommendations published by the Alzheimer's Association, and apply to all settings, types, and stages of dementia. The target audience for these guidelines includes professionals, paraprofessionals, and direct care workers, depending on their scope of practice and training.
