Adult Social Care and Health OSC – 13 September

The next meeting of Warwickshire’s Health and Adult Social Care Scrutiny Committee takes place on Wednesday this week in Shire Hall, Warwick, starting at 11am.

There are two key areas being discussed at this meeting, the first being an update on Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). The CAMHS Service has undergone a competitive dialogue tender process for a single, redesigned, children and young people’s emotional well-being and mental health service.  You can read the update here.

The other key area this time is Dementia Awareness. In Warwickshire, there are estimated to be approximately 7,500 people living with dementia and this is likely to rise to over 11,000 people in the next ten years. Most of us will be affected in some way by dementia during our lifetime.

Raising awareness of dementia, creating dementia friendly communities and supporting people to live well with dementia are key aims of Warwickshire’s Living Well with Dementia Strategy (2016-2019).

A presentation will be made to detail some of the key achievements to date and to outline priorities for future work.

The scrutiny meetings are streamed live, so you may want to view the presentation. If so the link will be posted here.
