Following a successful pilot exercise, a small group of lay assessors have been visiting people receiving care in their own home delivered by one of the home care agencies commissioned by Bristol City Council. We are now rolling out the scheme to assess the quality of home care provided by other agencies contracted by BCC.
BCC fully supports the scheme and their Quality Assurance Manager says ‘Lay assessors provide an invaluable independent view of the quality of home care services and provide a voice for service users who are less able to represent themselves’
We now need to grow our team of volunteers and put this scheme on a permanent basis to give a voice to all those receiving care at home.
Our formal recruitment campaign will start later this year but if you think this role would appeal to you please register your interest and find out more by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org alternatively telephone 0117 922 4392 and be prepared to leave your preferred contact details so that either Ken or Paula can get back to you.
From mutual interests, memories, or activities you both enjoy, to using non-verbal communication skills, there are lots of ways you can start a conversation with someone living with dementia this #DAW2019.
Read on for tips on how you can get talking. https://t.co/VJiaJq977K
