Healthwatch - why it is important to review the care of people with dementiaHealthwatch - why it is important to review the care of people with dementia

Healthwatch have found that fewer than half of all people who use social care are getting the regular care reviews they are entitled to. Councils must ensure that these reviews are happening in a timely fashion, to meet the requirements of the Care Act 2014 and to make all care plans responsive to people's needs. Healthwatch found:

  • Only half of those receiving social care services received a planned review last year, and people with dementia this was even lower (45%).
  • One quarter of people with dementia had an unplanned review last year, due to an emergency or sudden change in circumstances.
  • 65% of people with dementia who had a review were referred for a full reassessment. However, half of these reassessments led to no change in the level of care and support.
