Training Resources on Dementia for Informal Carers In the Thames Valley Area
This project builds on the findings from the Dementia Academic Action Group (DAAG) which stated:
There was a need to offer (carers) more signposting to information, provide greater clarity and depth of information, particularly in the early stages after diagnosis and the development of greater support for the wider family and friends, so that relationships could be better enabled and sustained. (p. 139)
Health Education England Thames Valley Office commissioned a Dementia Project Fellow to address this need.
Phase 1 to scope Training Resources on Dementia for Informal Carers In the Thames Valley Area was completed in April 2016 (You will find this PDF document in the Related Documents Section below)
Carers and stakeholder partners were consulted to examine the following questions
- What information and educational resources are made available to informal carers and families of people living with dementia in the Thames Valley?
- What information and educational resources informal carers want?
- What is working well in information provision?
- What are the areas for potential development?
The finding are reported within the Training Resources on Dementia for Informal Carers In the Thames Valley Area and are being used to infprm Phase 2 due for completion March 2017.
