Care Inspectorate Pledges to Make a Difference
Dementia Carer Voices were pleased to attend the Care Inspectorate’s Conference in May, where Tommy was invited to speak to delegates about the You Can Make a Difference Campaign. This resulted in a number of pledges you can read below, from staff from the Care Inspectorate.
Building on this, the Care Inspectorate have launched a new website page to encourage people to make a pledge to make a difference in the lives of those affected by dementia. The Care Inspectorate has already gathered a number of moving pledges from staff members, and are asking everyone involved in health and social care to make a promise to improve the lives of those the meet. They have also now launched their new ‘Knowledge Hub‘, which is a fantastic source of information for those affected by dementia, which Elaine Samson wrote a viewpoint blog for Dementia Carer Voices when it went live last month.
A big thank you to Heather Edwards, Karen Anderson, Lindsey Muir and all the team at the Care Inspectorate. We are privileged to be a part of all of this, and to see so many people pledging to make a difference.
