The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has announced plans to inspect more than 150 care homes and acute hospitals to review how people with dementia are cared for in England.
The review will focus on:
- how people living with dementia are supported to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing.
- how effective care can reduce admissions to hospital from care homes and avoid unnecessary lengthy stays.
- how care services can work together when there is a need for people to move between services.
The review aims to identify common themes on what works well and what needs to improve on a national level.
If you are living with dementia or caring for someone with dementia the CQC would like to hear about your experiences of care. Complete this webform and share your experiences.
