National Dementia Strategy – All-party group to look at dementia care workforce

Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Just prior to the official launch of the National Dementia Strategy, it was announced the a group of MPs and Peers will begin a six-month investigation into the dementia care workforce.

Members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia (APPG) will investigate whether social care staff caring for people with dementia at home or in care homes are being equipped with the right skills to deliver quality dementia care. The APPG on Dementia is calling for evidence from care home organisations, care staff, regulators, people with dementia and carers.
