The Housing and Dementia Framework was launched by CIH Scotland, Healthcare Improvement Scotland and Alzheimer Scotland at an event on 30 October 2019. The Framework is designed to support housing organisations to think about how they can better support people to live well with dementia. It sets out five outcomes that are important for people living with dementia, their families and carers. These are underpinned by 11 commitments that housing organisations should already be achieving or working towards.
Housing organisations are encouraged to ‘sign up’ to use the Framework and commit to continuously improve the way they deliver dementia friendly services and design.
The Framework and supporting materials can be accessed online and to mark the one year anniversary of the publication, a new series of interactive online workshops is being launched.
The first workshop, an introduction to the Framework, will take place on 26 November 14:00 – 15:30. You can find more information about the workshop and sign up online.
