Older adults’ services
Enable East has been at the centre of some ground-breaking projects which have revolved around the improved care of older people as well as an increased awareness and appreciation of the effects of dementia and ageing.
Some of our work in Older Adults’ services include:
In My Shoes: Enable East managed the Dementia Workforce Transformation Project with a central aim of improving the workforce development and training of health and social care staff surrounding Dementia services. The programme was commissioned by Health Education East of England and was delivered via the North Essex Partnership University Mental Health Foundation Trust (NEP).
New Care Pathways for Older Adults: Enable East has supported a number of projects to develop new care pathways for older people. In 2013 we worked across multiple stakeholders in West Essex to develop proposals for a new integrated frailty pathway now fully implemented. We also supported Peterborough CCG with the development of innovative local care pathways as part of wider work to recommission local services from a new provider.
Dementia Ward Review: Following concerns about the overall climate of care on a specialist dementia ward, Enable East was commissioned to undertake a review of the ward and make recommendations for immediate improvements to services and care.
