A dementia practitioner, Lisa, challenged poor practice around planning the care pathway of a client, following training from BIHR on how to use a human rights approach. Lisa recognised that the client’s own wishes to live in her own home were not being given appropriate weight. Lisa said:

"getting people to think about the range of human rights involved meant she was given a much more dignified, respectful pathway to be supported to live in her own home".
