About the Journal of Dementia Care
The Journal of Dementia Care is a multidisciplinary journal for all professional staff working with people with dementia, in hospitals, nursing and residential care homes, day units and the community. The journal is committed to improving the quality of care provided for people with dementia, by keeping readers abreast of news and views, research, developments, practice and training issues. The Journal of Dementia Care is grounded firmly in practice and provides a lively forum for ideas and opinions.
Please note that we also publish the Australian Journal of Dementia Care.
The Journal of Dementia Care has the following aims:
- To provide a strong editorial commitment to improving the quality of care provided for people living with dementia in hospitals, residential and nursing homes, daycare, homecare, sheltered housing and other community settings.
- To raise the profile of all professionals working in this specialist field and to make them feel valued.
- To present the ideas and opinions of professionals working with people with dementia, and those of people living with dementia.
- To emphasise the value and importance of training and staff development to achieve high quality dementia care, and to provide the information on how those improvements can be achieved.
