Dementia Advisers Survey
Age UK and Ipsos MORI Report - Dementia Advisers Survey
Age UK and Ipsos MORI have released a new report, which contains findings from a survey into the provision of dementia adviser services throughout England.
The aim of this research was to explore the provision of services available to older people, with particular reference to dementia adviser services throughout England.
Dementia advisers provide a single identifiable point of contact for people with dementia and their carers following a diagnosis. They have knowledge of and direct access to the whole range of available local services, providing advice, information about where to get care and enabling contact with other services.
Having a single point of contact was highlighted as being an essential element of effective post-diagnostic care in the Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia 2020.
To achieve this, those responsible for commissioning dementia adviser services within Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Local Authorities (LAs), were invited to complete an online survey in October/November 2015.
