Inverclyde Care Co-ordination
The Focus on Dementia team worked collaboratively with Inverclyde Health and Social Care Partnership, from June 2019 until March 2022. This programme of work supported improvements and redesign of community based services to improve the experience, safety and co-ordination of care for people with dementia from diagnosis to end of life care. The emphasis was on supporting people to stay well at home or in a homely setting for as long as possible.

Inverclyde dementia care co-ordination final webinar

Dementia and palliative care identification tools guide
The Focus on Dementia team have designed a palliative care identification tools guide for staff supporting people living with dementia. The guide will make it easier to choose a tool to use or to find out more about the choice of tools available.
Inverclyde dementia support and services leaflet
The leaflet contains information and contact details for health, social care and community services and supports in Inverclyde. This information is intended to support people living with dementia to manage their condition, to live well and independently at home and stay connected to their local community.
The leaflet was co-produced with our Programme stakeholders and the Inverclyde Dementia Reference Group. The Dementia Reference Group is for people living with dementia and their carers to share their stories, ideas, and experiences.
Learning and innovations in Inverclyde during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic
Inverclyde Health and Social Care Partnership produced a case study sharing their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although not related to the Dementia Care Co-ordination Programme, it captures learning and innovations within Inverclyde HSCP that many other areas across Scotland may find of interest.
