The Cross-Party Group on dementia in the National Assembly for Wales has launched an inquiry into hospital care - and they want to hear from you.
From the October/November 2018 issue of Dementia together magazine, we meet a Side by Side volunteer in Wales who has found that helping someone else still feel part of the world has given her a new place in it too.
We are campaigning to make the National Assembly for Wales dementia friendly.
The Cross-Party Group (CPG) on Dementia is a group of Welsh Assembly Members from all parties with an interest in dementia.
Other organisations that may be helpful when thinking about an assessment for care and support in Wales.
If the person with dementia or their carer has a complaint relating to any part of the process, it is best to try to resolve it with the person they have contact with, such as the assessor or social worker.
Once an assessment has been carried out the next step is to organise the care and support.
Not everyone will be eligible to have care or support paid for by their local authority. This eligibility for Wales is determined through a financial assessment of the person receiving the care or support.
Anyone who cares for a person with dementia is also entitled to an assessment of their own needs as a carer. This page includes information about getting a carer's assessment in Wales and what to expect and what to do in preparation for the assessment.
A local authority (also known as local council) has a duty to assess the care needs of a person with dementia. This page looks at how someone with dementia can get a care assessment including the process for application and what to expect.
