Following today’s webinar for the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA) presented by Sarah Ormston, MacIntyre’s Specialist Health Advisor and Dementia Project Manager and myself, the slides (without audio) are now available on the DAA website for anyone who wasn’t able to join the webinar live. You can find the slides here (you will need to scroll down the page until you find our webinar).

Entitled ‘Learning Disabilities and Dementia – Enhancing Care and Support’, the webinar showcases the pioneering work MacIntyre have done through their Department of Health funded ‘Dementia Project’, which aims to improve awareness of learning disabilities and dementia, support a timely diagnosis and train professionals. We explore the value to frontline staff of having access to the ‘Wellbeing for Life’ toolkit, and give practical tips for any health and social care provider who are supporting people with a learning disability and dementia, or who are at risk of developing dementia.

I am the external consultant for MacIntyre’s Dementia Project, and have worked closely with the team on this work. MacIntyre are also my longest serving consultancy client, at 4+ years.

I am extremely proud to be a National Member of the DAA. Please do take some time to read more about the DAA.
