Dementia and people with learning disabilities: making reasonable adjustments
This new report from Public Health England is on improving care for people with dementia and learning disabilities. It is the 17th in a series of reports looking at reasonable adjustments in a specific service area. The aim of these reports is to share information, ideas and good practice in relation to the provision of reasonable adjustments.
This guide is to help staff in public health, health services and social care to ensure that their services are accessible to people with learning disabilities who may have, or be developing, dementia or be at particular risk of doing so. The guide is also intended to be of use to families and friends of people with learning disabilities. There are links to resources to use when supporting people as well as good practice case studies.
