Dementia care is complex. Care providers' lack of information and skills heighten anxiety and result in a variety of risks and missed opportunities to enhance quality of life for people with dementia. In addition, well-intentioned regulations aimed at improving care can easily become barriers to resident, family, and staff satisfaction. Organizations committed to overcoming these challenges find that it starts with connecting all dementia care staff through a person-centered philosophy and care approach.
