The Bristol Dementia Wellbeing Service took part as partner organisation in the research project “The Dementia Experiences of people from Caribbean, Chinese and South Asian communities in Bristol” overseen by University of West of England (UWE) which has just been published. UWE spoke to older people and their families from African-Caribbean, Chinese and South Asian communities in Bristol in order to find out about the experiences of people with dementia.
The service is currently considering the report’s recommendations and will continue to work in partnership with community groups across Bristol to ensure the service is responsive to the needs and challenges for people with dementia across different communities.
A copy of the report can be viewed here and the suplimentary information here.
You can also hear about the experiences of dementia of people from BME communities in this film.
Bristol Dementia Wellbeing Service received a Highly Commended Award in Specialist Services in Positive Practice in Mental Health awards that took place at Anfield, Liverpool on 11th October. This is a fantastic national recognition of the hard-work and dedication across the service, putting people affected with dementia at the heart of their care.
