About the Journal of Dementia Care

The Journal of Dementia Care is a multidisciplinary, bi-monthly journal aimed at all professionals working with people with dementia. It recognises that professional carers working with people with dementia have their own special demands which deserve a specialist publication.

Please note that we also publish the Australian Journal of Dementia Care.

The Journal of Dementia Care has the following aims:

  • To provide a strong editorial commitment to improving the quality of care provided for people with dementia in hospitals, residential and nursing homes, daycare and homecare settings.
  • To raise the profile of all professionals working in this specialist field.
  • To present the ideas and opinions of professionals working with people with dementia.
  • To emphasise the value and importance of training and staff development to achieve high quality care.

The Journal of Dementia Care Guidance for authors is now available to download.

You can also download the Media Pack for the Journal of Dementia Care.
