SCIE (Social care Institute for Excellence) has created a new section on their website about Working in Partnership with Caregivers. This segment focuses on caregiving for persons with dementia, but it could be applied to all caregivers. According to SCIE, caregivers and families play a vital part of providing care to older persons. This section shares ideas for both families and health care professionals on ways to communicate and work alongside each other while providing care.
Working in Partnership with Carers has 5 modules: Becoming a carer; Supporting carers at the time of diagnosis; Working alongside and supporting carers; Supporting carers in hospitals and care homes; Supporting carers of people with advanced dementia.For more information and to view the webpage please visit http://www.scie.org.uk/publications/dementia/carers/index.asp
