Making it real for people with dementia

A considerable number of organisations have already signed up to Making it Real. To support them TLAP has been asked to provide more help and advice on how Making it Real can work in practice for people living with dementia and their families and carers.

TLAP is certain that person-centred approaches work for people with dementia, as good practice is already evident in the best care homes, domiciliary services and community-based supports. However, it wants to ensure that the ideas in Making it Real are accessible, practical and easy-to-use for everyone.

This document aims to show how Making it Real can be a useful tool for commissioners, providers, families and communities to help ensure that people with dementia can live well and independently for as long as possible. The work was developed with a cross-sector steering group of experts including carers and people with care and support needs.
