  • Housing compendium gives examples of best practice

    Housing compendium gives examples of best practice

    16.08.19 The national Housing Learning and Improvement Network (Housing LIN) has added to its dementia resources library with a new compendium of best practice in dementia care. It put out a call during Dementia Action Week in May for examples of housing-related support for people with dementia to develop meaningful relationships, and the compendium has been compiled from these examples. Examples range from informal arrangements to formal provision, all aimed at reducing social isolation and loneliness in extra care and other housing schemes. For “Going the Extra Step: A compendium of best practice in dementia care,” go to www.housinglin.org.uk/_assets/Resources/Housing/Support_materials/Reports/HLIN_CaseStudyReport_DAW19-Compendium.pdf

  • Green dementia care promises to enhance wellbeing through nature

    Green dementia care promises to enhance wellbeing through nature

    14.08.19 In a week in which a world authority on climate change said plant-based diets were vital in averting global warning, “green dementia care” sounds like the way of the future too. The Housing and Dementia Research Consortium (HDRC) has just posted a blog on green dementia care, which is otherwise known as nature-based dementia care and aims to promote health and wellbeing through interaction with nature. It follows a research project, undertaken with the Association for Dementia Studies and funded by Abbeyfield, which explored enablers and barriers to nature-based care. “Many barriers to the provision of nature-based activities were identified during the study, including risk aversion, the availability of staff and volunteers, time and financial constraints, negative attitudes towards such activities, organisational policies, and the size and design of outdoor spaces,” says the blog.
