Abstract

This article describes a Department of Health-funded study that mapped rehabilitation services--and examples of good practice--for older people with dementia in England. The findings suggest that there are potential benefits in locating rehabilitation services within intermediate care, including a higher service profile with clearer care pathways and access to a wider range of professionals across health and social care. The author concludes that a seamless range of services can be provided via intermediate care, but argues that nurses need to challenge the perception that rehabilitation cannot be achieved for people with dementia.
