The Triangle of Care

Carers Included: A Guide to Best Practice for Dementia Care

When Carers Trust was approached by the Royal College of Nursing to explore whether our Triangle of Care project could be adapted to meet the needs of carers of people with dementia in acute hospitals we were delighted. This collaborative project has developed through the support of carers, people with dementia and professionals.

The Triangle of Care model of carer inclusion and support has proved to be very successful in mental health services with over three quarters of mental health providers in England involved in the project and the model being adapted for use in Scotland and Wales.

We hope the new guide for best practice in dementia care can lead to consistent carer involvement and support across all health and social care services irrespective of where and when a person is being treated.

The partnership between Carers Trust and the Royal College of Nursing has been incredibly positive and we hope that this can be replicated across health services with nurses and carers working as partners.
