How can social support services and social care be adapted during the ongoing pandemic?

About this Event

The first nationwide lockdown has caused severe difficulties for providing social care and social support for dementia and ageing. Due to the lack of social engagement, people with dementia deteriorated faster.

In light of the 2nd round of stricter public health measures, social support services (e.g. day care centres, support groups, paid home care, befrienders, social activities in the community) need to be adapted better to provide support during the ongoing pandemic.

At this one-off workshop, we invite social care and social support service providers, third sector organisations, academics, clinicians, and wider care providers to discuss jointly how services might be adapted during the pandemic.

We will share some emerging findings on how people with dementia, carers, and older adults have been affected by service shut downs, and hear from various service providers, including The Brain Charity and Me2U Care, about their experiences of trying to adapt services, but facing severe difficulties.

Join us to come up hopefully with some possible solutions.
