The Journal of Dementia Care (JDC) is a multidisciplinary journal for all professional staff working with people with dementia in hospitals, nursing and residential care homes, day units and the community. It is available via subscription and distributed throughout the UK and internationally.
The journal is committed to improving the quality of care provided for people living with dementia by keeping readers abreast of developments in dementia care practice, training, research and technology, as well as showcasing good practice and the latest resources, events, news and views.
JDC is grounded firmly in practice with a strong emphasis on ‘knowledge translation’ which closes the gap between dementia care research and practice. JDC provides relevant, high-quality, well-researched articles with practical solutions for dementia care settings, written by practitioners, researchers and other experts in the field of dementia care within the UK and internationally.
