    Council loneliness initiatives can 'cut rate of emergency admissions'

    20.06.18 Initiatives by individual councils to tackle loneliness have cut the rate of emergency hospital admissions, which in one locality have gone down by as much as 20% as a result, the Local Government Association (LGA) claims. The LGA urged the government to fund more prevention work of this kind in order to alleviate the pressure on NHS and social care services. It called on the government to reverse cuts to public health budgets and plug the adult social care funding gap. One million people aged over 65 often or always felt lonely, the LGA said, which could be as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and increased the risk of premature death by 26%.

  • Dementia UK guide for carers of people with cancer and dementia

    Dementia UK guide for carers of people with cancer and dementia

    19.06.18 A guide for carers on cancer and dementia has been produced by Admiral nurse charity Dementia UK. “The main risk factor for both cancer and dementia is age,” the guide begins, before setting out the basics of each condition and going on to talk about treating cancer in someone with dementia. Among the issues raised is that of consent to cancer treatment and the fact that the capacity to do so can be affected by dementia. The guide advises carers on what to do: “If someone is not able to make a decision, health professionals can still give treatment if they believe it is in the person’s best interests,” it says. “But they must try to get advice about the person’s wishes from partners, family or friends.” “Cancer and dementia: A guide for carers” can be found HERE
