Findings from Dementia engagement activities published

A report has been published, providing an overview of the engagement activities that have taken place between the 11th of February and the 22nd of March 2019 with people with dementia, their families and carers as well as the general public and professionals across Warwickshire.

The purpose of this engagement exercise was to understand what is important to people and what needs to improve in relation to dementia care and support in Warwickshire. This feedback will be used to help re-fresh Warwickshire’s current Dementia Strategy ‘Living Well with Dementia in Warwickshire 2016-2019’ and will help inform the future commissioning of dementia services as both the Dementia Navigator Service, and Dementia Day Opportunities services, are required to be recommissioned by the 1st of April 2020.

Are you looking after a loved one living with dementia?

Warwickshire Reminiscence Action Project (WRAP) are running our next FREE OF CHARGE LAALO (‘Looking After a Loved One’ living with dementia) programme aimed at those caring for someone who has dementia commencing on Thursday, 6 June 2019 at Briar Croft, Alcester Road, Stratford Upon Avon, CV37 6PH.
The programme runs every Thursday morning from 10.00 am to 12.00 midday for a period of six weeks’ with each session looking at a different topic from, ‘What is dementia?’ through to, ‘How to look after yourself as a carer’.
We also have relevant visiting professionals such as Mental Health Nurses, a Social Worker, a Solicitor, a Dementia Navigator, a Care Provider, etc, who can explain their roles and answer any questions.
However, we feel the main benefit of our programme is that participants have the opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation to discuss their issues, worries and concerns and support each other.  If potential participants are struggling to find someone to look after their loved one for the duration of the programme, we can offer day care for a small charge at the same premises.
Session 1 – Thursday, 6 June 2019
Session 2 – Thursday, 13 June 2019
Session 3 – Thursday, 20 June 2019
Session 4 – Thursday, 27 June 2019
Session 5 – Thursday, 4 July 2019
Session 6 – Thursday, 11 July 2019

Have your say on care homes in Warwickshire

Do you work in – or with – a residential care home in Warwickshire?  Do you have a family member or friend who lives in a residential care home?  If so, we’d like to hear from you!

The purpose of our Accommodation With Support Services review is to establish if the care home services provided in Warwickshire are meeting residents’ needs, are safe and effective, and whether people supported have a good experience of care received.

We are seeking the views of people that are currently residents of Warwickshire care homes as well as those of their families, carers, professionals working with care homes and any general member of the public who wishes to feedback on how Accommodation With Support Services are provided currently, and what we could do to improve these services going forward.

You can access the Accommodation With Support Survey at:

https://ask.warwickshire.gov.uk/

Please note this survey closes on Wednesday 26 June 2019 so if you want to have your say then please do so as soon as you can.
