Warwickshire Living Well with Dementia Survey 2019

Closed 22 Mar 2019

Opened 11 Feb 2019

Overview

The Better Health, Better Care, Better Value Partnership is reviewing our local ‘Living Well with Dementia’ Strategy and the services and support available to people with dementia, their carers and families.

As part of this review we want to hear from a wide range of people about what they feel is important about access to services and support, what is working well and what could be improved. This information will help us to develop local dementia services and support and to help review our current dementia strategy.

Information that may help you to complete this survey:

The ‘Living Well with Dementia’ Strategy: is a plan which outlines the local priorities and needs of people living with dementia and their families or carers, and how health and care organisations will work together to support people to live well with dementia. A summary of the current strategy can be found at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/dementiastrategy.

Dementia Services and support:

The main types of dementia services and support available locally are;

  • Dementia Day Opportunities: Group based support where people socialise with others, undertake activities, eat meals together and are provided with support from dementia trained staff. Access to this service usually requires a social care assessment.
  • The Dementia Navigator Service: provide advice, information and emotional support to people with dementia and their families in all areas of Warwickshire about dementia specific issues and the things that are affecting them following a diagnosis. Support from this service can be provided over the phone, by email or face to face. You can self-refer to this service or can be referred by someone else.
  • Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust Memory Assessment service: Consists of a team of clinicians from different professional backgrounds with skills in assessing people to see if they have dementia. They also provide post diagnostic information and other support for people who have just been given a diagnosis of dementia

There are other types of services that support people with dementia, such as home or residential care and community based groups such as 'dementia cafes’ and GP practises.

What is The Better Health, Better Care, Better Value Partnership?

Coventry and Warwickshire’s Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (sometimes called an STP) involves local NHS organisations and councils working together to improve health and care in the areas they serve with a focus on supporting people to be healthier, provide high-quality care and make services more sustainable. There is a particular priority around Mental Health including Dementia.
