disAbility support for people with dementia

Obviously, I am not blogging very often lately, mostly due to my brain being unable to focus on more than my new studies, and DAI matters. However, as requested, attached is an updated PDF version of the model of ‘care’ vs the pathways of disAbility support I advocate for, which people with dementia have a human right to and not only Prescribed Disengagement®, as is done most often prescribed to us currently… hope this one works for those of you who kindly told me you could not read it as a screen shot from my book, due to the size.

  4. This is an essential Topic
    The Moment Dementia is recognized and Stated in a Clear Language by the UN Convention we achieved a Lot.
    Next step will be how the Individual countries – national policies make it real .
    We Need OUR VOICES and the political Support !
    ADI as Well as AE Are the ones to fight with us !
