Dementia SPACE Team

Our Dementia SPACE Team offer specialist support and expert advice to those living with dementia and their carers. They also provide specialist training courses for any organisation looking to train their employees around mental health conditions, dementia and end of life care. 

They work to create dementia friendly environments through an innovative approach to care and evidence based practice. Working closely with our dementia associates, the team improve communication, training and learning in dementia care by following national, local and Making Space guidelines and joining forces with other industry professionals.

Partnerships 

Our DST participates in establishing partnerships to help work towards developing specific projects, some of which include:

Dementia Friends

The team provide support and create awareness within services and communities to create dementia friends and bespoke awareness sessions.

Providing awareness sessions encourages the development of dementia friend networks and creates more scope for people living with dementia to access local community services and reduce isolation.

Dementia Law Clinic

Our award-winning Dementia Law Clinic is delivered in partnership with The University of Manchester. It is the first holistic clinic in the country to offer free legal advice, Admiral Nursing, communication and activity support to those living with dementia and their carers.

Consultant Admiral Nurse

Our Consultant Admiral Nurse works in partnership with Dementia UK to provide specialist practical, clinical and emotional support to families living
with dementia. The team work with other professionals and organisations to further develop their knowledge and understanding of dementia and its effects.

Dementia Care Mapping

Dementia Care Mapping is an established approach to achieving and embedding person-centred care for people with dementia, recognised by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. For over 20 years it has been used by care practitioners to improve quality of life for people living with
dementia in a range of care settings.

We are a host organisation for the nationally and internationally acclaimed Bradford Group Dementia Care Mapping.

The team can provide support and care to existing mappers to make sure the correct care is being delivered and plans are  properly actioned.
