The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the REAP framework, a comprehensive person-centered approach to care that gives health care practitioners practical, specific means and strategies with which to deliver person-centered dementia care. The four pillars of the REAP framework model are relating well, manipulating the environment, recognizing retained abilities, and knowing the person.
