While such a move reflects what people with dementia have said they want (Pratt and Wilkinson 2001), it raises needs and expectations that the traditional model of support cannot realistically meet. Alzheimer’s Scotland – Action on Dementia (2003) has previously articulated these needs as including the provision of relevant and accurate information, the meeting of emotional needs and the provision of appropriate social support. These needs are probably universal to all people with long-term conditions, but if we consider that the profile of people known to have dementia and their supporters is changing, then it follows that their needs may best be met well before a crisis point is reached.

The intention of support would therefore appear to be inherently prophylactic, utilizing educational and psychological mechanisms to enhance coping strategies. Clear comparison can be made with the nature and psychological processes of palliative care support services and in this respect the promotion of problem-focused solutions, rather than emotion-based ones, is the desirable outcome. Arguably, postdiagnostic counselling may therefore represent a vital element in the early introduction and development of a palliative care approach towards the experience of living with dementia.
