In a nutshell: Two dedicated dementia support workers have been appointed in Walsall to improve dementia care and end of life care for people diagnosed with dementia living in care homes across the town. The dementia support workers will support staff at care homes across Walsall to use evidence based tools – such as the Abbey pain scale – to help the homes become more dementia friendly and ensure that end of life care plans are carefully considered and tailored for each individual.
