There is a reputational and real cost to failing to implement the new dementia standards strategy in your organisation.
With one in four of all general hospital beds in the U.K. occupied by a person over 65 with dementia*, and the Mental Welfare Commission’s report highlighting the “urgency” in improving training and education standards, doing nothing to raise the quality of outcomes for elderly people in Scotland is not an option.
Make sure your organisation is represented at this important national event and take back crucial learning on:
Learning from pioneering practice about speeding up diagnosis, raising awareness and personalising care
The next steps for integrating health and social work services in Scotland
Identify dementia-friendly housing provision responsive to the wide support needs of tenants
Improving care and minimising lengths of stay in hospitals
Reshaping care for older people towards prevention and earlier intervention
Insights from Service Users and Carers
This event programme has been designed in close consultation with decision makers across all the leading Scottish agencies responsible for dementia and older people’s care to give you the information, guidance and inspiration you need to improve your provision.
