Abstract

Supported by a cultural change movement, resilience in long-term dementia care has become increasingly relevant and important. The process of cultural change promotes resident-directed care and quality of life, with the care-based relationship between the resident and direct care workers emphasized (Foy Whithe-Chu et al.). Examples of this cultural change include care settings in a homelike environment focusing on residents' autonomy, opportunity for choice, and sustaining a sense of self and control. This chapter illustrates characteristics and experiences with homelike dementia care setting in the Netherlands and United States.
