Fife Health and Social Care Partnership - Dementia Friendly Fife Workshop
When: 10.00am-1.00pm, Thursday 21 March 2019 Where: Fife Voluntary Action, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Fife Health & Social Care Partnership This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.
The purpose of the workshop is to hear from Dr Shirley Evans from Worcester University about a service model for people living with a diagnosis of dementia and their carers called The Meeting Place.
The model is researched based and originated in the Netherlands. Shirley has been supporting the roll out of the model in England and would like to offer services in Scotland the same opportunity.
The model is inter-organisational and interdisciplinary and fits completely with the philosophy of health and social care integration. It works especially well with people who are in the mild to moderate stages of dementia. In the workshop Shirley will give information about the model and how we could consider implementing it in Scotland.
Places are limited to 15, to book your place please contact Ruth McCabe, Dementia Friendly Fife Project Manager, on [email protected] or by phoning 07755 291 030.
