    Did Chancellor Philip Hammond rescue social care with the measures he promised in his Spring Budget? We ask whether an extra £2 billion and a Green Paper on a longer-term settlement can put social care on an even keel.

  • Funding cuts “displace” dementia-friendly housing as a priority

    Funding cuts “displace” dementia-friendly housing as a priority

    28.06.17 A leading dementia specialist in the housing field has sounded a rather sombre note about progress in the development of dementia-friendly housing. Despite what she said were examples of good practice Sue Garwood, who is leaving her post as dementia lead at the Housing Learning and Improvement Network (LIN), suggested that dementia was no longer a priority in the housing sector. “Cuts to funding and welfare reform appear to have displaced dementia as a priority amongst industry bodies and housing providers, while at the coal face, integrated working and inclusion of the housing sector is still an uphill battle, despite examples of good practice,” Garwood said in a blog on the Housing LIN website. The Housing LIN is the main network of housing, health and social care professionals in England and Wales. See HERE for the blog.

  • People with dementia team up to launch “Three Nations” campaign group

    People with dementia team up to launch “Three Nations” campaign group

    28.06.17 A group of people with dementia have joined forces to help improve the lives of everyone living with the condition across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Three Nations Dementia Working Group hopes to raise awareness, reduce stigma, influence public policy and become a collective voice for people with dementia. It will be modelled on the Scottish Dementia Working Group, which is an independent voice of people with dementia funded by Alzheimer Scotland and the Scottish government. Following the launch of the Three Nations DWG at the Alzheimer’s Society conference in May members are developing a website and ways for people to be involved. Group member Wendy Mitchell, who has young-onset dementia, said: “We have lagged behind Scotland in the creation of this group for so long that I'm glad to be part of it and hope to encourage others to become involved.” Anyone interested in joining should enquire at yoursay@alzheimers.org.uk
