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 the ADI 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 on the variation in the quality of care provided, regardless of where in the world care is taking place. Additionally, ADI aims to ensure a more focused approach on meeting people’s needs by providing the global recognition on institutional deliverables on high quality programmes
These programmes will provide a structured approach to the knowledge and skills of participants, as well as establishing standards that the providers of the programmes would need to adhere to. Through successful completion, providers of the programmes can earn ADI Accreditation. This allows providers to proudly present that they have received global recognition for meeting the standards of ADI, which ensures integrity and quality at all levels.
