Successfully caring for a person with dementia involves good communication that boosts self-esteem, positive physical contact, creative thinking that encourages the person's existing skills, maintaining positive attitudes, and rekindling the spark of life in both you as the supportive partner and in people with dementia.

These solutions, strategies and advice are not based on the traditional medical approach. Instead, DCA focuses on understanding and promoting the total wellbeing of everyone involved, while achieving the highest possible level of social, emotional and cognitive fulfilment for people with dementia.
