Abstract

When people with dementia are admitted to hospital, both they and their carers and families have crucial roles to play. They should be positioned as the only true experts in the unique individuality of the person and brought into the nursing process as an equal partner in care. ‘Care to Talk’ is a conversational model developed through Appreciative Inquiry to facilitate this way of working. The model, its development and outcomes are discussed.
