We have a whole range of problems to explore and find solutions to at the Connected Care Camp on the 7th December which are being added to as more people complete our survey. If you have not yet completed the survey about what the priorities are please do because we are learning so much from your responses!
The following Twitter conversation is a stark reminder of what needs to change urgently in the care sector. Thanks to Mandy Paine for allowing me to cite this conversation.
Are we seriously accepting that this is an acceptable level of care for older people living with dementia?
This is one of a number of practical problems we will be encouraging Connected Care Camp participants to explore and suggest possible solutions and action points
We will also be helping people to understand who has the responsibiliy for making change. This may include connecting with Jeremy Hunt Secretary of State for Health @Jeremy_Hunt, Norman Lamb Minister of State for Care and Support @normanlamb , Jon Rouse Director General for Social Care@RouseJonDGDH, Andrea Sutcliffe Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care@Crouchendtiger7, @NHSEngland, Healthwatch England the consumer champion for health and care, @HealthwatchE, @SCIE_socialcare, @TLAP1 , @skillsforcare, @skillsforhealth and the Chief Executives of professional bodies and charities working in the field of dementia, isolation, loneliness and improving residential care.
