This is me - a communication tool for care
Wherever the person is cared for, if staff have information about the person and their life, condition, behaviour and routines, they will be able to provide better, person-centred care.
Alzheimer's Society has a support tool called This is me that can be used to record this information for a person who has communication difficulties. When completed, it provides a snapshot of the person with dementia, giving information about them as an individual, such as their specific needs, preferences, likes, dislikes and interests. It is also helpful to communicate regularly with the professionals caring for the person.

You can use our 'This is me' form to help communicate with health and social care professionals.
