For People, by People – An Individual Centred Approach to Care
Dementia care as well as old-age care should always be first and foremost for the benefit of the person themselves. InterRAI tools are developed to put the person in the centre, focussing on their needs and abilities. Data collected can also on an aggregate level be use for resource planning and costing. However, the bottom line is always that care is for people and provided by people.
