People with dementia being Experts by Experience

file-page1

Experts by Experience is a term for someone who has experiences of using health or social care services. The Expert by Experience uses this experience to take part in Care Quality Commission inspections. Experts by Experience help the CQC inspector to find out about the quality of a service. A service might be anything from a hospital to a care home.

Our friends at Kate Mercer Training are interested in supporting people with dementia to be Experts by Experience.

Kate Mercer Training are hoping to work with the DEEP network. They are looking for people with dementia who are interested in becoming Experts by Experience. They want to work with the DEEP network to find out what training and support people with dementia would need to do this work.

Kate Mercer Training are also hoping to make contact with family carers of people with dementia who would like to be Experts in Experience themselves or would like to support a person with dementia to have this role.

If you have experience of this role or are interested in finding out more – please contact nada@myid.org.uk or Kate Mercer (kate.mercer@katemercer-training.com / 07876 158276)

  1. Hi Kate , my husband George was diagnosed 3years ago, and has very early stage dementia, which the specialist feels is more MCD. He takes Mementine , 20mg, and leads an active life, still driving etc.
    I’ve spoken to him about DEEP and your training, and he is keen to hear more about it, with a view to becoming involved. He attends a monthly dementia-friendly group, and regularly helps with talks to local schools and colleges.
