Who knows best? Older people's contribution to understanding and preventing avoidable hospital admissions

Part of Prevention and wellbeing

This video is based up the findings of a new study conducted by the University of Birmingham’s Health Services Management Centre and the Department of Social Policy and Social Work. Working with 104 older people and 40 local professionals, the research looked at how the older people were admitted to hospital, whether they felt this was the best place for them and what alternatives might have been explored.

Dementia and sensory loss

Part of Dementia

Having sight or hearing loss makes things more difficult for the person with dementia who is already working hard to make sense of the world around them.

Keeping people with dementia active and occupied

Part of Dementia

Supporting a person who has dementia to remain active and still feel involved in life can be the key to maintaining quality of life even into the later stages of the illness. This is not just the job of an activity organiser or an entertainer, it is also part of every person’s role, whether you are a friend or relative, a home or day care worker, a nurse, a care assistant, a manager or a domestic worker.

Care Act: assessment and eligibility: strengths-based approaches

Part of Care Act 2014

Sections provide information on what a strength-based approach is; the information practitioners need to carry out an assessment; using strength-based mapping; and key factors that make a good assessment. It also looks at how local authorities can extend the use of the strengths-based approach from assessments to meeting needs and provides a summary of core local authority duties in relation to conducting a strengths-based approach.
