This project aims to develop and implement an integrated health and social care pathway to provide support for older adults (over 65 years) living with dementia and their carers in the community co-ordinated by a named community nurse. This nurse will ensure equitable access to support, information and care from diagnosis throughout all stages of the illness to end of life.
This project seeks to improve the participation of older people with dementia and their care givers in activities during visiting time in a community hospital setting. Meaningful participation in activity creates improved conditions where people with dementia will be able to improve their health and wellbeing.
