Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council
Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) Borough Council’s carers support project provides support and advice to individuals living in the area who care for a family member, friend or neighbour who is ill, frail, has a disability, suffering with a mental illness or substance misuse problem. The service has been running for twenty years and takes an early intervention and prevention approach to support aiming to meet low level needs of carers in order to prevent crises. The geographic profile of the area can make it difficult to co-ordinate support as the borough is relatively large and the towns often lie some distance from each other. As a result, the service has to be a little more creative in the way it works, with events being held in places such as local job and leisure centres.

Assistive technologies (ATs) are being ‘mainstreamed’ within dementia care, where they are promoted as enabling people with dementia to age in place alongside delivering greater efficiencies in care.
