For Dementia Awareness Week from 20-26 May this year, the Housing LIN has gathered examples of where extra care schemes or other housing related community services have supported people with dementia to develop meaningful relationships to prevent unwanted social isolation or reduce loneliness.
The examples range from informal arrangements supported by staff or other residents as well as more formal service provision.
We had such a fantastic response to our call for examples of dementia care best practice that we didn't have space to publish them all. This is a roundup of some of the other responses we received.
Thanks to everyone who sent in their examples.
Note: The views expressed in this feature have been provided by the featured organisations and are not necessarily those of the Housing Learning and Improvement Network.
If you have any examples from your own organisation that you would like to share please send details to Katey Twyford and Wendy Wells, Housing and Dementia co-leads for the Housing LIN, email@example.com. We will be developing a compendium of best practice examples to go on the Housing LIN website.
