Dementia in the care home & community

This network meeting was held on the Friday 6th November 2015

The aim of this session was to to hear from the South Gloucestershire Dementia Action Alliance (SGDAA) about their work and how you, as care providers, can assist in Dementia support and awareness in the community. We looked at tools and resources and discussed how we can together develop support and services to improve dignity of both people living with dementia and those that care for them.

We will looked at current practices and how they relate to the 10 point dignity dos. We also looked at new and recent resources to help support people living with dementia in the care home and support community engagements.

Speakers:

Subitha Baghirathan, Development Officer from South Gloucestershire Dementia Action Alliance (SGDAA)

Shaney McCarthy, 3rd Year Student Mental Health Nurse, UWE.
