Documents East Dunbartonshire's Dementia Clinic Advisory Service, which is built on a model of co-production and choice for people with dementia.
It is a service co-designed and delivered by a network of third sector providers. The service delivery model is already helping to reshape services and reduce pressure on frontline council services and budgets.
Approaches to making personal budgets work well for older people (including people with dementia) emerged as a high priority and TLAP has committed to do more work in this area.
This report is a first stage. It draws on two key surveys:
- The ADASS personalisation survey (2012)
- The TLAP National Personal Budgets Survey (2011) and a review of relevant literature.
This is a short introduction to using information and communication technology (ICT) in activities for people with dementia. It is aimed at managers and staff in the care sector, and those who organise activities for people with dementia. It's a plain language guide about using mainstream technologies - you don't need to be technically minded.
A growing number of people with dementia in the UK are becoming actively involved in groups to try to influence services and policies affecting people with dementia. The Dementia Engagement & Empowerment Project (DEEP) was a one-year investigation aiming to highlight groups and projects involving people with dementia. The report offers specific ways forward for organisations wishing to engage with people with dementia. Resource published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation in October 2012. Summary and full report available.
This report considers how York can become a more dementia-friendly city. While York is responding positively in many ways to the needs of people with dementia, there is still much to do to make sure that people can live well with dementia.
This project drew on the experiences of over 100 carers (family members, partners, friends, volunteers) who have taken on the role of proxy decision-maker for someone with dementia.
I wish to thank them all for their invaluable contributions to informing both the practical guide to making decisions and this report.
This guide provides practical advice and information on how to weigh-up information and options for action when faced with situations in which major decisions need to be made. This guide was informed by a study of over 100 carers with proxy decision-making powers, funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
