Comments Off on New Progress for Providers resource developed for dementia

In Control is pleased to have worked with colleagues to develop a new Progress for Providers resource to help achieve greater personalisation for people with dementia living in care homes.
This publication is primarily for managers of care homes supporting people with any type of dementia, at any stage. It may also interest families of people with dementia who may be looking for a care home and wish to know how to assess the homes they are visiting.
The work was sponsored by the North West Transition Alliance as part of their regional personalisation and market development programme and by the Alternative Futures Group. It was developed by Samantha Leonard (Joint Commissioning Manager, Lancashire County Council and NHS Central Lancashire), Nicole Alkemade (Older People’s Joint Commissioning Manager, NHS Stockport), Angela Boyle (Assistant Director, Alternative Futures Group), Carey Bamber (Associate, In Control), Trevor Adams (Founder, Passionate Dementia Care), Martin Routledge (Head of Operations, In Control), Gill Bailey (Helen Sanderson Associates) and Helen Sanderson (Director, Helen Sanderson Associates).
