The needs of people of living with dementia and their carers change over time and in order to ensure that the best care is provided, care systems need to respond appropriately, as detailed in our World Alzheimer Report 2016,
This involves maintaining regular contact, monitoring and reviewing care plans, and providing support to meet needs when they arise whilst ensuring that care is continuous and person-centred.
ADI aims to support the improvement of care for people with dementia and reduce the variation in the quality of care provided, as well as ensuring a more focused approach to meeting people’s needs through the delivery of educational training programmes. These programmes will provide a structured approach to the knowledge and skills for the participants, as well as establishing standards that the providers of the programmes would need to adhere to.
Through successful completion of an evaluation, carers, their trainers and providers of training programmes can earn ADI Accreditation. Accreditation means that the training and learning activities have reached the required ADI standard, ensuring integrity and quality at all levels.
