Day Two / 15th September
This session will be run by Karen Clayton and Derek Shepherd
Karen's presentation will cover how to create stimulating environments for those living with dementia. It will explain how to increase independence by enhancing resident and patient recognition of their surroundings, including areas such as corridors and communal rooms. The right environment encourages positive interaction and engagement by providing areas that offer meaningful activity and the appropriate levels of stimulation.
Derek's presentation looks at how the delivery of a range of residential and nursing care services, fully embodying the vision for integrated care, have been provided within a single facility. Providing a connection between acute care and social care, Haven Court is a transitional facility for older persons moving along a care pathway.
Haven Court does not simply replicate the traditional residential and nursing care services currently available within South Tyneside; it provides a more integrated form of service provision, incorporating a range of services and facilitating easy transition in, out, and between these services as an individual’s care needs change.
Given the increasing prevalence of dementia in relation to the service users supported by the Council, services have been developed in line with best practice for such services as outlined by the National Dementia Strategy Living Well with Dementia.
The Integrated Care Services Hub (Haven Court) is an innovative new model of delivery for older people with health and social care needs. It makes a demonstrable difference to the following key performance indicators:
As a leading healthcare provider, South Tyneside Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust secured the contract to deliver the construction and provide the operator status for South Tyneside Council. P+HS Architects were selected as lead consultant and Architect to support the design and construction of the new facility.
