New service starting with carers at the forefront
The Mapping Educational Carers Service Team have been commended by the Carer Friendly accreditation panel for designing their new service around the needs of unpaid carers. This new Aneurin Bevan University Health Board Team facilitates carer educational groups, staff training and dementia care mapping. This team is currently based at Ty Siriol. It is a pilot project bringing together dementia coordinators from across the Gwent region. The panel were particularly impressed with the amount of partnership working that was being undertaken to support the needs of unpaid carers. Congratulations on achieving the advanced accreditation!
