Our team of skilled dementia support consultants provide advice and recommendations to care home staff, caring for someone with dementia, where behaviour is impacting on care.
Dementia Support UK is an accessible dementia consultancy service, funded by Innovate UK, and free at the point of referral, which builds a support infrastructure for the care of people with dementia across the care home sector. Using video conferencing, this nonpharmacological and person centred model provides care home staff with dedicated one-to-one time with a dementia consultant to:
- Better understand the behaviour of the person living with dementia
- Problem solve
- Build capacity within the care home
This highly innovative approach was developed in Australia by The Dementia Centre, HammondCare. Since its commencement in 2016, the programme has supported over 25,000 people with dementia in care homes, domestic homes and hospitals.
