Recognition for sensitive dementia care services

Care homes in Walsall were recognised for achieving improvements in the dementia and end of life care they provide, at an event hosted at the Mayor’s Parlour in Walsall.

A cluster of care homes have been supported by the Dementia Support Workers: Care Improvement and End of Life Service and have made substantial inroads in improving their dementia and end of life service. They were presented with achievement certificates by the Mayor of Walsall, Councillor Angela Underhill in recognition of the tremendous commitment, passion and progression in the key areas of their work.

The Dementia Support Workers: Care Improvement and End of Life Service, jointly run by Pathways 4 Life (a partnership between the Accord Group and Age UK Walsall) and St Giles Hospice, is available to all care homes across Walsall and is funded by the NHS Walsall Clinical Commissioning Group.  The service aims to support staff, families and carers to provide good quality End of Life care to people with dementia and has greatly benefitted from the knowledge and expertise St Giles have brought to the partnership.
