  • New dementia ID cards

    New dementia ID cards

    07.08.20 Another initiative from the Young Dementia Network is young onset dementia ID cards, one for use by the person themselves and the other by family members, supporters and carers. Personal information can be recorded on the cards that might be useful if assistance is needed. Additionally, the network has created a document providing guidance for dementia support workers, dementia advisers and key workers who usually support older people with dementia. The guidance, developed by younger people with dementia themselves, outlines the issues younger people with the condition face in particular. Go to www.youngdementiauk.org

    Pioneering music therapy project Music in Mind goes online

    06.08.20 Manchester Camerata, which runs the pioneering music therapy project Music in Mind, has received a £50,000 grant so that it can be delivered online. Due to start in September, Music in Mind: Remote is intended to give “emergency relief” from isolation for people with dementia in care homes. In the project, Manchester Camerata’s orchestra team up with music therapists for group-based musical improvisation, aimed at encouraging people with dementia to express themselves and communicate with others. The grant, from the government’s Innovate UK programme, will pay for instructional videos, guides to delivering musical activities and online support from consultant music therapists.
