In the know: Implementing good practice

Diana Kerr and Heather Wilkinson

A resource pack for anyone supporting a person with learning difficulties who develops dementia.

This resource has been developed to help anyone supporting a person with learning difficulties who develops dementia. The ring-bound pack contains a series of easily accessible, straightforward, practical and realistic guidance to provide good quality care.

It is arranged in three sections: background, fact sheets and tools. Each of these sections is designed to be used alone or together with other parts of the pack. This pack is the result of many years of research and practice by a multidisciplinary group of academic researchers, trainers and practitioners working with people with learning difficulties who develop dementia, and with their staff, family and friends.
