How do we support challenging client groups?
By their very nature those with dementia and Learning disabilities will struggle to retain the central government guidance about social isolation, social distancing, handwashing, presenting at primary care etc.
This is a very new dictate and some members of our community will not be able to retain this information. Social care’s role will be to minimise the risk to these clients and help to manage their behaviour by working with firstly their families, and over time we may need to support more European style measures to ensure these clients adhere to the guidance.
