Alzheimer’s Society calling on care workers to share experiences
Alzheimer’s Society is asking professional care workers to complete a short set of questions to find out the barriers and challenges they face in caring for people with dementia.
To take part in the survey, please follow the online survey link.
Using the anonymous results of this survey, Alzheimer’s Society will work with the Government to create meaningful change and a universal social care system that provides quality care for every person with dementia who needs it.
Fiona Carragher, Director of Research and Influencing at Alzheimer’s Society said,
'Professional care workers are unsung heroes that make a huge difference in the lives of many people with dementia, but chronic underfunding of social care puts care workers under unimaginable strain.
After a harrowing fifteen months, which has laid bare the dire state of social care for all to see, transforming dementia care must be the legacy of the pandemic.
'To do this successfully, we need your help and opinions to make sure we’re prioritising the most urgent issues affecting care professionals today.'
