Utilising the skill of trained ‘mappers’, Dementia Care Mapping is an observational tool used to evaluate the well-being of people with dementia from their point of view, according to 23 behaviour categories and a +5 to -5 scale which measures the emotional state of persons with dementia.

From this ‘map’ you are able to identify areas of care that are working well and areas that can be improved and can be used to :
This will help establish the nature of the changes, how significant the changes are and generally who will be most impacted. All of this information will help you in developing your person centred culture change strategies.
