Pathway of ‘care’ vs disAbility support for people with dementia

Kate Swaffer describes the current pathway…medical model…fir people with dementia, as against the social model which many of us look for.

The following are the two pathways of support published in my book, (Swaffer, K 2016, What the hell happened to my brain?: Living beyond dementia, Jessica Kingsley Publishers, p.p. 165-166) that many have recently asked me for. So, in case you simply wish to refer to them, I am adding them from a set of power point slides that I used recently!
