Meeting in Leeds on 4th November
Does your relative with learning disabilities or autism live in supported living or a residential home? Are you worried about their health?
If yes, come to a meeting on Monday 4th November from 10.30am until 3pm held at Oxford Place, Leeds.
People with learning disabilities have poorer health and are likely to die earlier than the general population:
- They need access to good healthcare;
- They need sensitive support to prevent them falling ill or their health getting worse;
- They need effective support to manage ill health.
Social care providers want to get better at supporting people with their health. Improving Health and Lives is writing a health charter for social care provider organisations so that they can sign up and improve their practice. The charter will be accompanied by guidance including stories and advice from family carers.
Come to a meeting and tell us:
- What is working well – so we can encourage good practice;
- What isn’t working – so we can explain how to avoid it;
- What sort of support makes a difference to your relative’s health.
The event will be hosted by Liz Wilson, Family Consultant Dimensions / NDTi Associate and Carol Robinson, NDTi Associate.
The Meeting will take place on Monday 4th November and will run between 10.30 and 3pm.
A sandwich lunch will be provided and reasonable travel expenses will be paid.
