A provider perspective
The South West Dementia Partnership has commissioned the United Kingdom Homecare Association to research and deliver the findings of this important report ‘Improving domiciliary care for people with dementia: a provider perspective’.
Home care providers from a variety of backgrounds and geographical locations across the South West had input into the research. This was complimented by organisations and key people with knowledge and experience in the field of dementia from other parts of England.
With the future of health and social care under the microscope, this opportunity to look at how home care can rise to the challenge of providing person-centred care and support for people with dementia and their families, could not have come at a more critical time.
The project has been designed to show how providers are meeting the challenge of supporting people with dementia and their carers, and how they can deliver person-centred care and support in the future.
The experiences and aspirations of providers and care workers shared in this research are crucial in helping to tackle the difficulties that exist today and implement the changes needed to enable home care to meet the challenges ahead.
