New VODG report: Learning Disabilities and Dementia

A new report published today by VODG (Voluntary Organisations Disability Group), in partnership with Alzheimer’s Society, Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities, the National Care Forum, and MacIntyre, calls for the needs of people with learning disabilities and dementia to be better addressed.

The report, which highlights the work being done as part of the MacIntyre Dementia Project, focuses on the need to improve policy and practice in relation to people with learning disabilities and dementia.

Within the report, MacIntyre Dementia Project Self Advocates Rosie Joustra and Rachel Silver, describe how important it is for all staff to know about learning disability and dementia in order to fully support people with dementia and make a difference to their lives.

The full report is available to view and download on the VODG website.
