Dementia Support UK pushes button on new app

Dementia Support UK (DS UK) is highlighting its new app to deliver consultancy services that support care staff who work with people with dementia.

The app allows care staff to access expert advice on the go and is built around the needs of busy care teams who have access to DS UK’s resource library, e-learning suite and consultant support via live chat or video.

DS UK’s non-pharmacological service delivers: a better understanding of the behaviour of a person with dementia (known as BPSD); support to identify and respond to BPSD; problem-solving time with a specialist consultant to agree on the actions that can be taken; and staff and organisational confidence and capacity promoting quality dementia care.

Staff feedback on DS UK includes:

· 71 per cent reported a reduction in behaviour/s (BPSD)

· 65 per cent reported reduced carer stress linked to the behaviour

· 65 per cent reported avoidance of the use of a more expensive health resource

· 82 per cent felt confident in using DS UK advice and resources with other residents in their care

DS UK is a subscription service. For more information, email dsuk@hammondcare.com or download the free DS UK app.
