This chapter reviews the literature associated with critical social and health care practice to examine how professional practice in the field of dementia can be reshaped to reflect a social citizenship approach. It focuses on direct, case-based practice, recognising that this is where the majority of those who have professional responsibility for supporting people with dementia work. It tries to clarify the artificial dichotomy between case-based practice and more macro level practices such as community and social development. It discusses and examines the general principles for a social citizenship approach to practice. It also emphasizes three strategic approaches for realising the principles that can help provide the bridge between concept and practice.

Keywords:   social practices, health care practices, dementia, community development, social development, social citizenship
