Key points from the work of these authors

Attachment theory, most developed and applied to the early years, has

relevance to our understanding of dementia and its impact on people and their

family carers. Understanding attachment helps us to understand behaviours

and responses to dementia.

Attachment, an emotional link between two people which lasts through space

and time, affects people's ability and willingness to relate to the world around

them and can be a preventative factor in managing the symptoms and effects

of dementia.

Attachment can enhance the safety and security experienced by people living

with dementia, can support them to maintain relationships, connect with their

community and engage in support and care.

"Senior leaders within organisations

need to recognise the importance of

research and taking a collective stance

to encourage and enable staff to

engage in research - for the short and

long term benefit of the organisation,

Northern Ireland community and

service users"
