Improving Services for people living with Dementia

Across Fife, we have been working with partners to offer care and support to people with dementia and their carers in a way which promotes well-being and quality of life. This is helping to improve the experience, care, treatment and outcomes for people with dementia. An additional worker from Fife Carers Centre has been funded to support carers of those with dementia and offer a carer support plan.

The Dementia Ambassadors programme in care homes and Dementia Champions Programme in hospitals settings are supporting staff to improve the experience, care, treatment and outcomes for people with dementia.

One Carer said: “I found all the information about carers and patients help good. The visits from them are always welcome and a big help with this strange illness.”
