  • Private care home operator appoints Admiral Nurse

    Private care home operator appoints Admiral Nurse

    24.10.16 Colten Care has become one of the few private care home providers to appoint its own Admiral Nurse, Kay Gibson, offering specialist dementia support in the company’s southern England care homes. Gibson said she would support residents, families and team members in Colten Care’s 20 homes, all located in the southern counties, as well as “actively going out and helping the wider community too.” She added: “I want to help raise the positive profile of care homes and how we provide dementia care.” Operations director Elaine Farrer said the appointment, created in partnership with charity Dementia UK, was a major move for the company. “To put into perspective just how important this appointment is for us as a private operator, there are more than 650,000 registered nurses in the UK but only 180 Admiral Nurses, and most of them are in the NHS. Having Kay with us is a huge step forward in our dementia care strategy,” she said.

  • Rise in recorded deaths shows greater dementia awareness

    Rise in recorded deaths shows greater dementia awareness

    19.10.16 An examination of deaths of people with dementia shows that the numbers have increased significantly since 2001. Public Health England’s Dementia Intelligence Network (DIN), which has launched a range of products looking at the issue, says that the increase in the figures is most likely due to greater awareness and consequently more recording of dementia over the period. DIN says the findings suggest that people in more deprived areas die with dementia at a young age and that there are “considerable differences” between the place of death of people who have dementia and the general population. “People with dementia are considerably more likely to die in hospitals and care homes and less likely to die at home or in end of life care settings such as hospices,” DIN says.
