Dementia forum - Personal care in advanced dementia: working towards reducing refusals

With Dr Tamara Backhouse.

People with dementia develop high needs for assistance with their personal care and in the later stages can be reluctant to receive support with these daily tasks. When people with late-stage dementia refuse assistance with personal care it leaves those caring for them in a difficult position. If care is not provided, the person with dementia could become neglected, have poor hygiene, or develop urine burns or infections. On the other hand, if care is provided, it could be against the person’s will. Refusal of care could be due to the person with dementia not understanding what the caregiver is trying to do, environmental factors, health status, or unmet needs. Refusals are common in people with dementia living in care homes and living at home. I will present data demonstrating this difficult area, consider current interventions, and introduce my Alzheimer’s Society Research Fellowship, which aims to examine this issue further.

Dr Tamara Backhouse is an Alzheimer’s Society Research Fellow at the School of Health Sciences, University of East Anglia. Dr Backhouse has extensive experience of working as a paid carer with older adults. She has been involved in a number of projects related to dementia care and care home research.

The bi-monthly series of free dementia events at UEA create an exchange of knowledge between researchers, clinicians, the general public, people with dementia and their carers.  Anyone with an interest in dementia research is welcome.

Researchers from UEA will present their cutting-edge research studies and findings – with a different UEA dementia researcher leading each event. There will also be an opportunity for people to find out how to take part in any upcoming studies.  At the end of each meeting there will be a short 15 minute Q&A and there will be tea and coffee on arrival.  The events are sponsored by Alzheimer’s Research UK.

The events are open to all and free to attend. Parking is free of charge in the main visitors' car park only and parking tokens will be validated at the registration desk on arrival. Please note that other car parks on campus incur standard UEA parking charges.

Department of Health and Social Care's national recruitment campaign workshop

With a turnover rate of 30% and over 110,000 vacancies at any one time, there is no doubt that we need to attract more people into adult social care. By 2035 Skills for Care estimates that we’ll need another 650,000 people by 2035. To help achieve this, the Department of Health and Social Care have piloted a recruitment campaign to help raise the profile of the sector and pending results will aim to run this nationally in early 2019. This campaign will talk about what it means to work in adult social care and to encourage people from all walks of life who have the right values, to consider a career in social care. 

Working in adult social care is rewarding, unique and makes a difference every single day which is why we invite you to get involved with the campaign and join us at this event. 

You will find out:

  • what the campaign is and what the learning has been from the pilot activity
  • what you, as an employer, can get out of it to help you with your recruitment challenges
  • about a recruitment campaign toolkit which is being developed and includes campaign materials and templates
  • how to use the campaign materials to help you develop sustainable local campaigns to promote jobs.

The event is being hosted on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care and attendance is fully funded. Lunch will be provided. Please note that the workshop is directed at adult social care employers, if you do not meet this requirement, please contact us to discuss. 

*Exact timings have not been finalised, we will update you when they are confirmed. Please note that the same information will be disseminated at each session, you will only be required to attend either the morning or the afternoon session.
